Modelo topográfico del monte Matterhorn en la frontera entre Italia y Suiza. Creado a partir de datos ASTER GLOBAL DEM descargados desde:
Los datos están disponibles en malla de 1 segundo de arco (aproximadamente 30m en el ecuador).
Para la obtención del modelo STL, se ha usado DEMto3d, una herramienta útil y fácil de usar para covertir MDE (modelos digitales de elevaciones) en modelos STL, listos para imprimir en 3D. DEMto3D está disponible en la siguiente dirección: http://www.demto3d.com/
DEMto3D funciona como una extensión disponibles para los softwares SIG gratuitos Kosmo (http://www.opengis.es/) y QGIS (http://www.qgis.org/en/site/)

Topography model of the Matterhorn in Switzerland. Created from ASTER GLOBAL DEM data downloaded from http://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/
The data are posted on a 1 arc-second (approximately 30–m at the equator) grid.
To obtain the STL model, I used DEMto3d, an easy and useful tool to convert DEM data to STL models ready to print. This tool is available in the next link http://www.demto3d.com/
DEMto3D is a plugin available for free GIS software Kosmo (http://www.opengis.es/) and QGIS (http://www.qgis.org/en/site/)

Great model and I really like this workflow. I gave it a shot and was only able to create a bunch of perfectly flat .stl files :) I downloaded the "ASTER GLOBAL DEM" data from USGS. I get a zip archive that has 2 .tif files (one xxxx_num.tif and xxxx_dem.tif). I loaded the dem.tif into kosmo and tried DEMto3D with the entire area of the data (and smaller areas). spacing .2 and 1:10 (gives 100mm by 100mm .stl). Always perfectly flat. Also tried the num file and a ton of other stuff. Any ideas?

Now DEMto3D v2.1 supports DEM input in geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude)!!!!. All you have to do is select the correct projection at the beginning of Kosmo, i.e. EPSG: 4326 for the reference system WGS84.

The terrain model is in xxx_dem.tif file. The problem is that you should reproyect the layer from geographical coordinate (lat º, long º) to another system in meters as UTM. To do this I use the software Global Mapper since Kosmo are working on it. Another option is to find another provider of DEM data which use UTM coordinates.
You could send me the file and I will back you the right file.

Thanks Jawensi. This is all very new to me :) I'm going to play around with this more over the weekend. I'd like to eventually put some models up in here also.
