NASA goes 3D, providing 3D models of NASA and other space stuff!

NASA - Welcome to the 3D Resources Page

Here you'll find a growing collection of 3D models, textures, and images from inside NASA. All of these resources are free to download and use.

Please read the Usage Guidelines.


3D Resources - 3D Models

These models are for anybody that uses a 3D software package. Most of the models are in the common .3ds format, which can be read by most 3D programs. Some models, however, are in their original .lwo, .fbx, or .obj formats to preserve details that would be lost in conversion


From Tools to the Shuttle;



I think my favorite is the Crawler. Imaging mashing this up to create some kind of uber-tank/land battleship thing...


While you're there, make sure you also check out the other stuff on the 3D Resources page too. There's some pretty cool looking things...
