These color 3D printed topography museum exhibit displays were developed by gathering 3D and 2D data from high resolution GIS sources. The data was then converted into 3D printable geometry, and colorized with the Haxby Palette to emphasize depth and interest. The final 3D prints were made as one solid piece measuring 15” in diameter, and then attached to custom bases. These models then integrated into a custom built exhibit structure on site at the American Museum of Natural History for final display in the Unseen Oceans Exhibit.
We are blown away! The models look amazing–the color and detail is so striking. We are so pleased with how they turned out. Thank you so much for your team's hard work and for getting these to us on such a short timeline. It was such a pleasure working with you!
