Bringing Cosmic Objects Down to Earth: An Overview of 3D Modelling and Printing in Astronomy and Astronomy Communication
Three-dimensional (3D) modelling is more than just good fun, it offers a new vehicle to represent and understand scientific data and gives experts and non-experts alike the ability to manipulate models and gain new perspectives on data. This article explores the use of 3D modelling and printing in astronomy and astronomy communication and looks at some of the practical challenges, and solutions, to using 3D modelling, visualisation and printing in this way.
