If you are a true fan of Eve Ships, then Astero 3D model for 3D printing will be a perfect addition to your frigate's collection of armored battleships. Its capabilities include agility and tenacity that adhere to the mantra of explorers and rescuers: stay safe, stay hidden, and use every tool at your disposal.

This ship is known for its capability of venturing into dangerous territories. It is equipped with a cloaking device, making it almost unspotted when passing through dangerous space. Although smaller than other battleships, Astero has powerful armor which helps protect its crew members from the attacks of the enemy.

Our 3D designers have crafted this stunning Astero 3D print design for all the fans out there. 

Buy Astero 3D printing files, pay with your PayPal account or credit card and download those 23 STL files. Print them out and enjoy having an exclusive spaceship model, either on your desktop or shelf or use it as a piece in your board game adventures.


On 12.06.2018 the model files have been optimized. We have added 4 new versions with high resolutions STL files for Astero 3D Printing Model. They now are already available for purchase and download in "Source files" tab.


The Astero 3D Model was reviewed and got 4 new versions for 3D printing. Changes came to all its details. Here is a list of changes and improvements:

- Now there is a new version FFF/FDM 2.0 with 1/200 scale, the versions FFF/FDM 2.1 and DLP/SLA 1.0 with 1/400 scale, and a version SLS 1.0 with 1:2000 scale that can be used to create your large collection of all EVE Online ships;
- The main body with the platform for the ship were divided into several parts for better 3D printing;
- All elements of the model were divided in such a way to print them more accurately and get a nicer model after printing and assembling it;
- All STL files have been checked and repaired in Netfabb and no errors were shown;
- Model fixed by the Locks. One part of Lock (2_Ge_lock_10H_x70) you need to print 70 times for FFF/FDM 2.0 version. One part of Lock (2_Ge_lock_10H) you need to print 7 times for FFF/FDM 2.1 version;

Here are the scales for new versions:

FFF/FDM 2.0 version dimensions:
After being printed will stand - 322 mm tall, 280 mm wide, 310 mm deep; - with platform

FFF/FDM 2.1 and DLP/SLA 1.0 version dimensions:
After being printed will stand - 161 mm tall, 140 mm wide, 155 mm deep; - with platform

SLS 1.0 version dimensions:
After being printed will stand - 120 mm tall, 27 mm wide, 33.5 mm deep; - with platform

There are 26 parts for FFF/FDM 2.0 version, 19 parts for FFF/FDM 2.1 version, 18 parts for DLP/SLA 1.0 and 3 parts for SLS 1.0 version.
