Choose all or any section to create your very own Vancouver 3D Map.
Paint it, hang it, make it look amazing!
I created a smaller version a few years ago and was told that the files had gap errors when slicing. I couldn't fix the error without losing map quality so I created a new version from updated satellite terrain data, and this time it's even bigger.
If you want smaller sections from each piece my suggestion is to use NetFabb from Autodesk (you can create a trial or even free student account) and cut the sections into smaller parts. There is an easy way using the cut function in NetFabb, and there are tutorials online. I can help if you send me a message as well.
You will need to scale the sections to your print bed size.
- Make sure that you write down your scale setting for all sections.
- Best results with 0.1mm layer height if possible.
- Use PLA or PETG considering that ABS will warp on such a large flat print.
- For best visuals you may want to scale the Z axis @ 2x or more. This will make the mountains and water ways more pronounced.
Please share photos of your map. I would love to see the paint work that you do or if you keep it as a solid colour.
