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.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
