Thanks for taking on this non-trivial problem.

Many people don't appreciate that, like all engineering disciplines, there can be cases where the "tool-chain" is lost and/or only runs in antiquated environments.

I read a news article several months ago about the USAF having to hire a reverse engineering firm to be able to duplicate a critical part on some very expensive flight kit (an SR-71 maybe; I can't find the article at the moment). They had not only lost the tools need to build the component with (probably long scrapped), but even the blueprints.
