3D model description

Printing of a part of the suburbs of Chicago, very characterized by its very low density and a clear grid pattern.

By setting the model with a setting of about 100mmx100m you will have a fragment of a square kilometre at 1/5000th with the topography, even if it is very flat in this case.

If the print is white, once in the dark (light or window) it will give a negative map of the city!

On the last two pictures you can see other models with other cities available on my profile, interesting to see the incredible difference in density, heights. We're talking about two very different urban situations but lifestyles that have nothing to do with it.

3D printing settings

Be careful to print as accurately as possible!

On the pictures, with a layer height of 0.05mm and a 0.2mm nozzle.

No support is needed but 100% infill to avoid the grid appearing, there is very little infill so it's not very consuming.

Once printed, you have to remove a lot of thongs, it takes 30 minutes of post-printing work...
