Right before the landing of Curiosity on Mars, Thingiverse user ThePlanetMike made a 3D printed Mars Curiosity Rover replica.
Curiosity is the biggest, baddest, laser-wielding, plutonium-powered, robot-rover ever sent to Mars. On Sunday, August 5, 2012 it survived a dangerous landing that secured Mars exploration hopes for a decade. It will help answer the question of whether or not we are alone in the universe. Why not print this fearless hero for your desk?
Find his .stl files here so that you can download it and print a multicolored Curiosity rover.
If a 3D printed Mars Curiosity Rover isn't enough for you, you can even use your 3D printer to print a Gale Crater. User neurothing uploaded a 3D printed model derived from MOLA data of Gale Crater where the newest Mars rover Curiousity touched down.
The image was printed at 0.27 layer thickness with 1 shell, 5% infill, no raft or support. Some warping seems inevitable on my printer, but not too bad. At these settings took about 1.5 hours to print.
Another interesting model from neurothing is a globe of the planet Mars. If you want to print a set of planets this can be a good start.
Are you excited for the landing? How hard is it to land on Mars? Print them to create your own curiosity's journey!
