Veeery nice! Congratulations :-)
Haw did you convert. . dem files to print them?

I extract the heightmap images using Microdem (http://www.usna.edu/Users/oceano/pguth/website/microdem/microdem.htm), combine them in Photoshop and then displace them onto a mesh with 3DS Max.

That's really beautiful. The layer lines also give the impression of forested areas where you've painted the model green.

Thanks for your feedback. I agree, the layer lines actually improve the appearance of 3D terrain. This is one of the few situations where having visible layers actually improves the appearance of the print.
