PRISMA Satellite Scale Models
The first step was to resize the files from the 1: 1 to 1:18 format to create a model of about 18-20 cm respecting the OHB specifications on proportions and details. We have worked to optimize the files for 3D printing, inserting ribs where necessary to make the model more stable and designing the anchoring system to the base where to apply the logos of the partners in silk-screen printing.
Once the three-dimensional file was defined, we created a first prototype stereolithography kit consisting of about 15 pieces. This was used as a master for the construction of silicone molds necessary for the production of 20 models. Following the silicone mold replicas, the parts were sanded and grouted to prepare the surfaces for metallization and painting.
