This model has the shape of the continental USA and contains the smoothed terrain. We use this model to generate jewelry like earrings and pendants for our GeoBling series. You probably have some other cool idea what to use this for ;)

- Load into your 3D printer software.
- Scale to the size and units you want (we designed this to be 35mm wide).
To print as pendant:
- Design a hook according to your wishes yourself, you could use tinkercad.com for this.
- Use a mesh software like Meshlab of Netfabb to merge this model with your hook.
