Explore the Apollo 11 Command Module in VR, with Accompanying 3D Print Files, via @Smithsonian @3D_Digi_SI

The Smithsonian Institute’s Digitization|3D division have scanned and modeled the interior of the Apollo 11 Command Module, which you can now explore – either as a 3D model in your web browser or as downloadable files to explore via GearVR or Google Cardboard! 3D print files are also available, and as you can see on this Twitter feed users around the world are already printing out their own lil’ Command Modules! More info here at the Smithsonian website.
