How is this 3D Map of the Netherlands created?

- We created the basic Map at (select AHN1 5m [wms])

- We changed the colors into a gray scale (and changed some colors)

- We imported it in SketchUp

- We used the Plugin: Bitmap to Mesh to create the map in 3D

- We imported it in Autodesk Meshmixer

- We gave it a body, did some adjustments and make the object solid

- We sliced it with Cura (size it back to 0,05, bottom thickness: 0.3 and fill: 20%)

- We printed it on the Ultimaker Original

Is it perfect? No, so we challenge you to make a better print or model.
