I have been making more 3D scenery and I thought I'd share my latest. This Mini City was made in Wings3D. I made the print shown here but this is also for sale on Shapeways: http://www.shapeways.com/model/199442/mini_city.html?gid=ug3 237 . It should print since I put a lot of effort into thickening everything up. Even the trees are several millimeters thick to stop them from breaking off. All of the ones in this print came through just fine. The proportions are a little odd, since it is more like a map or game level than a literal representation. The model is super efficient, using only 37,000 triangles yet it has tons of details like bushes, fountains, and lines on the streets. The model is 8 inches square.

An image of the back, showing how the streets and edges are 5mm thick to provide a sturdy frame, yet the buildings are hollowed to save material.
