CHEOPS made with a 3D printer

Real space enthusiasts would like to own at least a model of spaceships and satellites. Until now the ESA space telescope CHEOPS that is realized under the lead of the University of Bern was available as a paper model only.

Now you can print CHEOPS on a 3D printer. You may download data files and a construction guide for free.

Of course we would be happy to get a picture with the printed model on your desk or in the middle of your other space craft models. Please send your photo to
