Made with Makerbot 5th generation on standard speed, maybe detail would be better with slow speed..

Good to see Mount St Helens making an appearance again. I have been doing this with geography students and BfB printers for a couple of years now. It really captures their interest. I have produced a "Teaching and Learning" resource that helps get students and educators started with 3D terrain printing and it can be freely downloaded from the Bits from Bytes wiki (along with a load of other projects etc) http://wiki.bitsfrombytes.com/index.php/Geography_-_Mount_Saint_Helens_Volcanohttp://wiki.bitsfrombytes.com/...

I should have perhaps uploaded the files here on thingiverse but these .stl files are probably a bit better than mine (the z direction on mine are slightly exaggerated to help with the comparison of the pre and post eruption models)... But the main thing is if students get a better grasp of what a lateral eruption is then we are on to a winner :)
