    Looking for a source for STEP/IGES/SW for a Laser or possibly a Sunfish. Appreciate any ideas for sourcing.

    Autocad has software that will generate a 3d surface from a bunch of pictures. A CAD model can be created from slices of these surfaces (I don't consider surfaces to be a model).

    If you are thinking of duplicaing more than one Laser or Sunfish, you may be risking some deep doo doo. Those class boat designs are jealously guarded.
