Using 3D landscape/cityscape models for education, situational analysis, and communication requires the timely conversion of geographic information systems (GIS) data to physical form. Unfortunately the traditional processes for building models - hand made, CNC, or molded - are slow and expensive. Turnaround can take weeks and cost thousands of dollars.
3D Systems 3D printers enable you to output high-quality terrain, urban and subsurface maps in hours at very low cost. The technology will fundamentally improve the way you use GIS data to communicate, plus enable you to analyze critical elements with quick, inexpensive, and easily reproducible 3D models
