3D Printing prototype / by Colin Keefe

I got back my first prototype from Shapeways.com today.  The plastic is light and has a powdery feel. 

I have to wrap my head around what something looks like in modeling software versus the physical object; this came out with a much more subtle bas relief than I was expecting. 

Next step is to work on a new model, playing around with maps extruded onto spheres - city worlds - and organic buildings.
