Fuchs style 17 inch CNC Rim

As I need to fit 17 inch rims to my 1977 930 to allow the use of 993 T calipers, and wanting to keep the Fuchs style rims, I got to thinking about the possibility of CNC machining rims as opposed to using cut out Fuchs centers to make up 2 or 3 piece rims.

Any thoughts/ experiences on this thought? I am sure many have thought of it in the past, so I am wondering why thee is nothing on offer?

I have access to a 4 axis machine and a good modeler (3D) as well as various qualities of billet-

If this concept does work, at least I can make the exact in-sets I need and be able to make replacements if I should damage one!
