Default Cutting file for sweeps

So I've been needing a complete set of sweeps for some time now, and was hoping maybe someone here might have and be willing to share a cutting file with me .? And or know of a link to a file?
I know It couldn't be to hard to design up my own but I'm hopeless with computers! So any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

I think I might have a file for them but will need to check on my works PC on Monday to see if I can find it. Give me a gentle nudge if you’ve not heard back within a few days.

Jake,

Sorry, I don't appear to have it as it must've been in an email and I've deleted a load from previous years. I'll see if it's on my laptop at home but I doubt it.

Just to throw this out there as an alternative to a set of fixed curve sweeps, the majority of which, realistically, will never ever get used, is a flexible contour gauge which is really useful and super-cheap to fabricate.
The base is made from any flexible material; in my case, 4mm PVC sheet and the adjustable slots are made from modified cabinet stays. Naturally, the pop rivets in the PVC flexi-strip are countersunk.

I use it on all sorts of projects including finding the profile of any curve to be replicated in metal shaping.
