by • July 9, 2016 • No Comments

Equite day new stories are coming out involving the latest technologies.Some are not always completely new products, but perhaps only the way in which they use them. 3D printing is becoming a quite talked about method of making, not only on a very own level, but for commercial purposes in addition, and for the reason of its talked about ity, it is in addition becoming a cheaper hobby as well.

San Francisco-based programmer, Andrew Godwin has always had a passion for mapping, and when he became a programmer and accomplished the future of 3D printing, he put two and two together and came up with a masterpiece.Using Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), Godwin managed to capture the may already recorded data to turn it into his London landscape.

The whole 3D map consists of 48 individual tiles all pieced together to form an accurate map of the city of London.The overall cost of making the map was inexpensive, but did take a few hours in printing time and was done via the Rostock MAX v2 3D printing device.Andrew found which the most material to use for this particular job was PLA as was simpler to print and less sticky than ABS.
Once a few minor details have been ironed out and the printing device adonlyed to print additional exactly, and so Andrew hopes perhaps to do a map of Oxford or San Francisco next.Although Andrew hasn’t announced any plans for selling these maps, who knows if someone else out there may pick up on what a excellent thought it is and perhaps we can own one for ourselves shortly.
