Entire Country Gets Printed In 3D At 1:10,000 Scale

/ 2 years ago


3D Printing can be used to do a lot of cool things, that’s one of the reasons that the technology has become so popular. The latest use for 3D Printing is pretty darn cool, and has certainly interested someone like myself who is a graduate from a Geography degree. Micro CADD Services (MCS) has printed a to-scale 3D Map of the entire country of Bahrain. The scale used is 1:10,000 in order to keep the size manageable but the idea of 3D Printing maps could be very revolutionary and inspiring for a range of use-cases. As if maps weren’t already at the heart of our daily lifestyles in pretty much everything we do, now it is possible to get your hands on 3D printed versions/


I’d certainly like to have a 3D Printed map of the United Kingdom or at least London, here’s to hoping that the novel idea catches on!


Pretty cool huh? What would you print a 3D map of if you could?
