Altimetric map of Switzerland.

Data taken from the free dataset DHM200 Source: Swiss Federal Office of Topography.

Distributed in compliance with the license point 5h: "Publication of data on the Internet as single static image or within a viewing service, up to a maximum of 500,000 pixels for the purpose of providing information"

Please retain the above notice in all derivative works.

STL generated with Matlab using surf2solid (Matthew Roughan, http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/30709) and surf2stl (Bill McDonald, http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/4512-surf2stl)


Print and enjoy :)

The "smooth" version of the stl was generated with a Laplacian smoothing in Meshlab and looks better IMO.

The plain version represents the original data subsampled to a 2km grid.

Yeah, saw that afterwards :) - designs are unrelated even though based on the same dataset (probably) Pick whichever you like
