    Came across an online tool that takes a region from Google Maps and spits out a 3D Topo file (.STL) for 3D printers.  There is an article about it HERE.

    There are other ways to generate this, and I can look at them later (just because I am curious) and try them out.  But thought I’d pass this along as a neat find for 3D printing.

    I’ll run this tool for our field day site and see what comes out.

    I had a failed print on a small scale sample.  I’m up-scaling it, and so far, it looks like it is printing OK.  Will post and new updates.

    I think it would be neat if you could make a 3D model of First Church. We could present it at an awards night to thank them for hosting the Club all these years.

    I can print something like that, if a model exists or someone can make a model.  I am not versed in 3D CAD modeling “yet”.  Depending on the detail, there would be a learning curve for me to create a model from scratch and there is the matter of having time.  BUT, like I mentioned, I would be more than happy to print it out, if a 3D sketchup or model exists.
