Printing Aerospoke hub

I recently bought a Aerospoke wheelset, since the rear wheel has a freewheel hub and Aerospoke doesn't produce fixed hubs themselves I thought why don't I print a hub myself with a 3D-printer.

Do you guys know a place where I can find the dimensions of a regular hub so I can base my design on that.

Thanks in advance

It's free/free both sides? I am pretty sure that they did do one as fixed.

The Track events wont have much cross winds on velodromes ,

so Pursuit bikes use a solid disc wheel now, for less air turbulence. and drag ..

What do you mean with free/free? The hub in the rear wheel has a freehub if that is what you asked.
I did more research and found out that it is possible to buy a new hub but it probably won't fit since the dimensions changed.

Are both sides of the hub free? Some wheels come free one side, fixed the other. Also called a "flip-flop" which is a stupid term but it describes it. I know that there are people with rear Aerospoke wheels that are running fixed. Did you check yours already?
