Texas (trimmed coastline) by 7777773 Feb 17, 2012

Description

I just trimmed the Texas height map to sea level and exaggerated the elevations a bit so it will show up better in your prints.

This was done completely in the Netfabb desktop application. I adjusted the Z axis to remove the ocean water layer and then added a few mm to the Z layer without changing x and y, which stretches out the visible peaks a bit.

MIne came out pretty good but next time I think I'm going to try much higher than 10% infill. Since the elevation rises unevenly it doesn't necessarily span an entire honeycomb which caused some drooping I noticest while it was printing but not neccesarily in the finished product.

I messed with taking the excess off with openscad, but just rendering it from the height map was everything my poor laptop could do. I finally had to go to bed. These tiles are 14x14 points.. The next size I made are 120x120.. I also have the original 1200x1200 tiles. There are 84 tiles to make texas.
