NASA releases printable models

Neat collection! I had a look at the Kepler spacecraft- looks tricky to print since there isn't one flat surface to use as a base.The solar panels are flat, but many fine details protrude beyond those planes. Cut in half and assemble it, I guess.

    Cool, however some model we can not print using normal home 3d printer. Just look at the small parts in the objects. No can do with todays home printers

    Very cool. If anything, they are excellent reference models to make your own. I mean, what better source than NASA itself. Printing via Shapeways should also not really be an issue.
