    I still have got no response from Piro yet. Apparently he was in hospital and was unable to continue with his models. So I have posted a message on his blog:
    http://piromodel.bbs.fc2.com/

    Maybe that works. ;)

    What a great day - Piro has replied to my posts. The results of Google translator sound more like another foreign language but I assume that he has no objections against releasing the files. :) In fact, it seems that he thinks that the parts have been altered so extensively that they have become a work of its own. Thank you, Piro! :)

    Y'know, I hate to tell you this, but they already have a piece like that...

    I got the same reply when I sent a .dxf, and Render of a single layer 8 pin,on each side, that would allow you to build models symmetrical, instead of only one direction. I received the same answer, word for word. Maybe Megablocks would be more interested? :)

    Actually, I was wrong: Megabloks is the one that has it:

    But LEGO does have a smooth plate with studs on the bottom:
