3D-Printed Topographical Maps Made from Google Maps, Terrain2STL | #3DPrinting #3DThursday @googlemaps
Ben from maker-tutorials has a great tut for converting topographical data into 3D-printed landscapes. As he suggests yes you could use this as a record of your summit, for instance – I can also see applications for tabletop wargaming, adding ‘terrain’ to aquarium environments, or art projects requiring various terrains. Very cool:
You climbed on top of one of the highest moutains and want to make a small 3D model of the landscape?
Such a minature mountain is a nice gift for climbers, skier or a memory of a beautiful moment.
In this tutorial you will learn how you can print a minature landscape with a 3D printer and what you need to take care of.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
