Abstract: A 3D-printed replica of the main mass of the Gross-Divina meteorite, kept in the collection of the Department of Mineralogy and Petrology of the Hungarian Natural History Museum, has been prepared in the framework of a Slovak meteoritic project. Th is 3D-printed meteorite replica is among the first of its kind produced worldwide, therefore some details of the scanning and printing process are given and the experiences of the project are summarised here. Data on the acquisition and research history of the specimen, collected in connection with the project, are briefly reviewed and some physical data (size, weight, volume density) of the specimen (re)determined are reported. With 4 figures.
