We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Now you can play with the only manned vessels to have left Earth orbit. Reenact all your favorite docking maneuvers and Moon landings.
UPDATE: I have refreshed the design of this model to use my new pin library. I've also improved the design slightly and printed it out, so I know it works now.
These models are as close to 1:67 scale as I can manage, working from various drawings and dimensions. The Lunar Ascent Module is courtesy of NASA: http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/3d_resources/models.html, which has a lot of free 3D models of spacecraft. I simplified it and made it manifold using Meshlab and Netfabb's cloud service.
Slip the serviceRing onto the end of the service module; this is meant to be a permanent attachment. All the other attachments use pinpegs and represent actual docking connections between the spacecraft. A little grease on the pegs makes them easier to remove.
Everything should be printable without support, though the ascent module may be pushing the limits. I added a thin wall to support the largest overhang, so just snap this off once printed.
