Printing Urban Terrains

Even if you’re not into gaming, perhaps you can appreciate the idea of printing urban plans and geographic forms.  See below for a Minecraft village 3D print from a group known as “post-apocalyptic research institute.”

Their flickr stream has more information.

At UR, we are working in similar areas:  (a) with a student who created a model of the International Center in SketchUp, (b) a faculty member doing research in Turkey, (c) the Digital Scholarship Lab doing work on the slave trade setting in Richmond, and (d) perhaps with University Facilities to print the campus master plan with buildings.
