The current work focuses on the challenges faced while realizing the 3D Model of ASTROSAT using Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) - A material extrusion based additive manufacturing technology. Initially, the entire assembly of the ASTROSAT was studied and modified appropriately to suit the demonstration model. The modified assembly was scaled down to 1:6 scale. The scaled down model was then re-modified at the local subsystems (or individual component) level, according to the manufacturability through FDM and this was the major challenge faced due to constraint on minimum printable feature size. All the subsystems or individual components were converted to STL format and were printed on FORTUS 400MC of Stratasys. Thus obtained 3D printed parts were assembled as per the assembly drawing. It was found that, the FDM technology and Additive Manufacturing technology as a whole, is very useful in realizing the complicated demonstration modelsin a very short duration, without compromising the prominent engineering features.
