I know C-Bear does a BB that allows you to install 3D+ cranks without spacers, but I was wondering if there was a steel bearing option that utilizes a similar design. This is the C-Bear option for reference. I have a number of bikes running this configuration and bearing life seems to be less than optimal on all of them so I figured a design with less room for water and dirt ingress would be better.

This one is for PF30, so it might work. Try finding Rotor's compatibility charts to see if they make any specifically for the 3D+ with external cups. You might have to resort to spacers on a quick inspection of their website though :( .
