Formula DC91 hub dimensions?

Does anyone have dimensions for this hub? I want to build up a wheel but can't calculate the spoke length without proper dimensions. The biggest LBS in this area can't measure and can't cut spokes to length. I think this is the model I have. There are no markings but it looks like the DC91 listed on Formula's site. Formula is no help in this case. They refuse to answer emails.

Measure the one you have then you'll have the exact dimensions for the hub you are building.

I already wrote that my LBS doesn't measure. I can't do it because it's not easy to measure a hub, especially a disc-compatible hub where the flanges are not symmetrical on the centerline. You can't just measure the dimension over flanges and divide by two.

Can't you measure the distance to each flange from it's corresponding locknut and then the distance between the flanges themselves? That should give you what you need.

You should be able to measure something like this.
make marks at the lock nuts and flanges.
