amp; thank you for the model!
Printing it right now to make a globe.
I hope I can get the pole/direction right :-)
I'm actually working on something like that for this space science for the blind. Once I get all the kinks worked out for the Replicator, I'm going to start making sets, which will include to-scale asteroid sets, Jovian and some Saturnian satellites as well as Mercury from MESSENGER and Venus from Magellan. But thank you for introducing your daughter to space science and I'll try and get stuff up as fast as possible.
Thanks for fulfilling my request. Not to be greedy or pushy but how about the rest of the inner solar system (Mercury
amp; Venus)? I know there's a globe of Venus out there in various colors that uses a radar based mapping run of the planet. I'm sure the Messenger probe has or will eventually provide data sufficient to make a textured Mercury.
I want to print a set of planets, moons, asteroids for my 3 y.o. daughter. She likes to reach up and grab the Moon and planets when they're visible in the sky. I've made a few color printed papercraft planets for her to look at but they're too fragile to let her handle (she already gave Mercury
a new "crater").

To get the differences in vertical height, I just changed the vertical height setting (V option) during the ApplyMeshUVN command - the default value of 1 yielded the exaggerated version, applying a value of 0.2 gives the smoother version.
