Thanks for your messages - If found someone to help me on that but I am still looking for a way to delete this post...

--------------------------

Hello,

I am looking for a modeler to import some terrrain from Google Earth and then shape it to prepare it for 3D printing.

By shaping it, I mean accentuating some curves, smoothing the terrain... but I guess it depends on the result of the import.
I would also like to shape it into different objects such as tiles, pendants, curved objects...

I found this technique for Rhino : http://www.simpleeditions.com/39002/importing-terrain-from-g oogle-earth-to-rhinoceros

Anyone up to it ?

Raphael

i sent you a pm. I can help you for sure. I'm a industrial designer and already worked in something like that in rhino before.

If there is an (easy) set of steps for doing this, it'd be very helpful to the community if you'd publish it here.
