What is an .MSH file?

.MSH is Orbiter 3D Mesh File

Proprietary 3D model mesh format used by Orbiter, a free space flight simulation program; saves the three-dimensional structure of a shuttle, station, or another space object; uses ASCII text formatting and specifies vertices and mesh groups for different parts of the model, as well as the textures (.DDS files) and materials to apply to the model.

MSH files are saved in the \Meshes\ folder of the software installation.
