- 3D-printed maps of the largest cities in the USA.
These highly accurate models are 3D-printed from custom-built maps in a 3D modeling software called Blender. Each square 3D-print is 10x10” and is mounted to a sheet of dibond . The dibond is constructed with brackets so each tile hangs perfectly level and in position, all with 1” in between.
The map includes every road, and each road is raised up according to its traffic: so highways are lifted the tallest, followed by primary and secondary, residential and finally service roads. All the railway lines are included, as well as foot paths, bike lanes, forests, and coastlines.
Then every building is set to scale, including high-resolution models of the tallest, most famous and iconic buildings. An architect was hired to do the redesigns for all of the unique architecture to capture an accurate skyline.
