Simplified model of Pioneer 10 space probe. I created this model for a conference room sign at work.


To be printed in pieces. Please scale models to 25% to fit on the print platform. Put together with modeling glue.
I replaced the whole main dish antenna, with separate half dish model, for easy printing:
maindish1.stl and maindish2.stl.
Replaced the one piece magnetometer which was too long for makerbot print platform with a two pieces model: magnetometer.stl.

on the All components file, I only see half of the dish.

You have to print it twice, both sides are exactly the same.


Hmmm, seems that now with latest updates not all the parts are to the same scale. Seems some are 25% scale of others. Can you confirm or correct?

I uploaded an STL file with all components at the same scale.

Hi, I'll check and correct. Will let you know.

Please do more of these!

Very very nice. But there seems to be a part missing: the piece that fits into the notch in the edge of the main antenna.

Sorry that actually a cutter piece that I hid and forgot to remove. I uploaded the antenna piece after it being removed. Thanks

Nice improvements. Looks like it will print much cleaner now.
