Golf Balls

I had a discussion with Elaine about a project that she was involved in
for designing an improved golf ball. This may sound like a simple task,
but remember a gold ball has lots of precisely defined dimples ( that
are specified to 0.0005"). On top of that, the dimples face all
different directions.

My questions are--
1. Does anyone on this list know anyone who has ever successfully
designed a golf ball with a CAD system?
2. Has anyone successfully made an RP model of a golf ball (actual size)
