Leave to itself for memory a slice 3D printing Norway
Norway – the inexpressible country with the unique nature which is rich on the impassable woods and the polar lights, snow-white snow, blue water. People from all over the world try to get to Norway to admire its great beauty. Its natural nature can be embodied by means of a photo, and it is possible to make the pleasant corner of the country with the help 3D the press and to take away with itself home unusual memoirs in the form of a figure which will remind you of travel on lands of Vikings.
Bengler Terrafab is a new project by means of which it is possible to print 3D slices of Norway in 2 steps. For this purpose you need to use open cartographical data of Norway, dely to choose the pleasant region and to press the button «To print model in 3D». If you are an owner 3D the printer, then you can download directly files, or send it in the Shapeways company which can make a figure in a real color palette, cost of such service makes 100 dollars, model-10х10 dimensions see.
Bengler team activity at first was scarified publicly because of the prices and availability of geographical data. But the Norwegian management of cartography confirmed officially cooperation with Bengler and provided all suitable information on data.
The project has 2 purposes: the 1st is to show to users of possibility of technology 3D and to help with the explanation of some tools, and the 2nd – to make useful and unique things which are applicable in different spheres.
By the Terrafab team were developed: the software for three-dimensional devices, a social network for users of the project, the topological cards intended for sociologists, cards were made with SLS technology application (selective laser agglomeration).
