Now it is possible to print DEM in 3D. Using an extension developed to manage the 3D printing output of DEM on Kosmo software, you can download a elevation model and set its to print in 3D. Basically the extension from a selected layer, determines the dimensions of the piece to print and allows export to STL format, widely used format for 3D printing technology. The extension is available in Spanish and English.
