Jigsaw puzzle of India map with 3 levels of difficulty
a) L0: India-map-base.stl (provides separate box like area for each state)
b) L1: India-map-outlinebase.stl (provides just the outline of the map. Basically it helps keep all the pieces together and provides hint for some of the states location.
c) L2: India-map.stl (just the set of state shape, put it together to make a complete map. This is bit tough in sapes don't have state name on it.
For level L0 and L1, you need to print the shape of all state (available in one single stl file) and one of the case.
I have printed it see the picture, it prints really well. Though the India-map-outlinebase.stl doesn't seems to be 100% accurate in size, and requires some post processing filing job on some of states (the one that goes in corners GJ, JK and NE) and in the case too.
I have combined some of the smaller states into one like all North Eastern states, as it would come out really tiny on my 140x140 printbed.
