3D Printing Terrain Elevation Maps (GIS Day Workshop)

Wed, November 17, 2021 4:00 PM - Wed, November 17, 2021 5:00 PM at Digital Scholarship Lab (Second floor of the west wing of the Main Library)

The MSU Map Library will be holding several GIS workshops during the Fall semester. All workshops will be held in person and online in a hybrid format. In-person will be in the Digital Scholarship Lab computer classroom on the second floor of the west wing of the main library (with the exception of the GIS Discussion Meet-Up on Nov. 5th which will be held in the Map Library). To attend online, please register at the link below and a Zoom link will be sent to you.

Workshop Details:

Celebrate GIS Day by learning to produce a 3D model of terrain elevation for printing on a 3D printer. We will learn about digital elevation models, where to find DEM data to create our printable export, and then use the QGIS plug-in DEMto3D to create a model. We will then edit and verify the model is ready for printing in Meshmixer.
