About the Design

This STL file of is split into two hemispheres suitable for printing and assembly into a model of the asteroid Itokawa Itokawa has a length of approximately 500 meters. Printed at it’s default size (5cm long) this model is at an approximate scale of 10,000 to one ( 1 cm = 100 m ) Data Credit : Gaskell, R., Saito, J., Ishiguro, M., Kubota, T., Hashimoto, T., Hirata, N., Abe, S., Barnouin-Jha, O., and Scheeres, D., Gaskell Itokawa Shape Model V1.0.
