I am sure there are many after market solutions. Would prefer Shimano to ensure 100% compatability.
shimano, bless their contrary hearts, make NO adapter for BB30, PFBB30 or anything else except for British or the far superior Italian threading.
NOT saying BB30 or any of the other non threaded 'standards'(what a joke) is a good idea cuz it isn't BUT shimano still doesn't make anything but threaded BB cups.
FSA makes a press in adapter for threaded cups, Wheels manufacturing makes some adapters. Praxxis has an interesting design also.
