This is fantastic, I'd love to get an STL file of the SF bay Area for a project, any chance you could share your secrets?

I am excited to go home and print this tonight. How did you generate it? I've tried generating from USGS data a couple of times and I get giant, non manifold messes. I actually even tried Mount Rainier.

I wrote some python code that takes elevation data and generates the STL. I'm going to put the code on github eventually. The 2-D array of elevation data is tessellated into a triangular mesh.
