A remix of Moriza's awesome Opportunity Mars Rover.

Use the original Mars Rover files with the replacements detailed below.

Original Model :http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:59509

Main Changes:

  • Replacement Solar Panel Frames:
    These solar panel frame models replace the original models and bring them in line with the sizes of the solar panels included in the original download.
    Opportunity_solarback -> Opportunity_solarback_MCEDIT
    Opportunity_solarmain -> Opportunity_solarmain_left_MCEDIT & Opportunity_solarmain_right_MCEDIT

  • Extended Rear Solar Panel Support:
    The Rear Brace Extension piece extends the rear solar panel supports, to take into account the enlarged solar panels.

  • Replacement Wheel Set:
    The new wheel pack provides a thicker connection between the wheel body and hub, socketed hub design, and a profile of the sprial flexure pattern used on the Mars Exploration Rovers.


  • Download the original Mars Rover files.
  • Download the replacement model files.
  • Print!
  • Assemble!
  • Rove!

nb. I found using a two part expoxy glue such as Araldite to be much more effective at gluing printed sections together than superglue.

By the way our files are being sold on, with both of our print photos:

It would appear that he's violating your licence as he hasn't attributed you in any of the models other than in part #1, and attributed no one for the photos that he has copied.

Love it! Looks great. Specially love your treatment on the wheels.

Thanks! It was a challenging model to print and assemble. Thanks for putting it up. Everyone that I've shown it to has been most impressed. :)
