GIS/Mapping

You can never deny that, there would have been at least once, when you were on a vacation, you wished to carry that
exotic piece of landscape back home just the way it was. Here it is to the traveler in you. 2D photographs are boring. Check out what magic 3d printing sweeps across the Geospatial air.

With the technology of 3D printing using paper as the building material, they have created models which are easy to sand and paint. You read the map well, roads, flyovers and subways have been created with 3D printing strips of grey paper glued on to the terrain.

You would be baffled if we tell you, 3D printing an entire country is no more a flight of fancy. The 1:10,000-scale model, 5.4 m long 2.2 m wide model of Bahrain, has knocked the socks of countries’ leaders, who plan to use the map for master planning.

It’s not too hard to infer, that 3D printing has lot to offer than a just a flat map on a parchment. Splish-splash some realistic colors on those intricate terrains; 3D printing leaves you holding the world in your palms.
