Thanks for catching this, Steve. I missed this message.

We'll host them on As you can see, 
we already have IGES and STEP for Neo 1973, so it's only Freerunner that 
needs converting.

I'll need to copy the files to downloads. Can you place them somewhere 
from which I can copy? If not, I'll see about finding a place to which 
we can give you write access.

As an aside, I would love to convert the CAD files to .dxf format. I 
know this loses some information but it would be very useful. Can you do
