The shape of (65803) Didymos I (Dimorphos) is obtained using stereophotoclinometry where stereo techniques with photoclinometry
is used to derive the tilt of an asteroid’s surface from DRACO images.
The model resolution is approximately 0.25m between vertices. The model has the format
v x1 y1 z1
v x2 y2 z2
v x3 y3 z3
(etc.)
f i1 j1 k1
f i2 j2 k2
(etc.)
where the letter 'v' denotes a vertex and the letter 'f' denotes a triangular facet.
A comment with # is provided at the beginning of the file providing
More details about the shape. See DART Shape Model SIS for more
details.

The VERTEX_TABLE is the first part, describing the positions of the vertices of the
shape model. The floating point numbers x1 y1 z1 are the coordinates of vertex 1,
and so on (vertices are implicitly numbered beginning with 1). The origin is the
center of mass, and the axes are the principle axes of the shape model. The units
are kilometers.

The FACET_TABLE is the second part of the shape model file providing the linking of
vertices into facets. The integers i1 j1 k1 are the indices of the 3 vertices that
form triangular facet 1, and so on.
