Skylab's isogrid floors.

Today I brought a small piece of a large piece of American space program history into the 3D world. Dimensions taken from a scan of an original McDonnell Douglas document from 1973.

Here's the files to download." onclick=";return false;" onclick=";return false;

3D Formats included, COB, IGS, DXF, SAT
2D Format DWG

I made one "star" unit with the arms long enough to overlap. There's a text file in the ZIP with some info and the dimensions to lay out an array of these units to join into a single object.

Edit: download using the link instead of the attachment. I've tweaked it a bit to improve how they object union and have a perfect tangent at the rounded corners.

Uploaded new ZIP file. Stupid format exporters made hash of the model so I triangulated the COB before exporting to each of the other formats.
