Gale Crater, Mounted by laird Sep 6, 2012

Featured Thing!

Description

I made it 1mm thicker (the bottom of the crater is zero thickness in the parent object, which doesn't print) and added a "label" so that people know what it is.

This thing was made with Tinkercad. Edit it online https://tinkercad.com/things/0EXXeKrVnTK

Yeah that's a great idea. I need to bite the bullet and learn how to do that... I thought it would be cool to do the Grand Canyon -- or at least part of it.
That is seriously cool!
Actually, the reason I made my version of this part is to make coasters. I'm just going to put clear silicone over the top.

Instructions

  • Print.
  • Imagine yourself on Mars.
  • Print Curiosity rover and drive it on Mars.
fwiw, Curiosity is to the upper left of Mount Doom -- er... I mean Mount Sharp. Tomorrow I'll get out my magnifying glass and see if I can spot it driving around.
Oh -- and it doesn't make a very good coaster.

What data did you generate the model? I used data from the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA) topography experiment aboard the Mars Global Surveyor for my model :

My model is derived from yours - it's your topology, I just added a base to make it printable. But the hard work was all yours!
Oh, spiffy!

Check out the new version I uploaded. I just got a fantastic print of it on my Ultimaker. Looks great even at Cura's "low quality" setting.
Nice one :)

I machined it with our shopbot instead of 3D printing it.. came out pretty nicely in solid wood!

thanks!

JMM.
That sounds awesome! Please post a photo.
