About this Product

One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon is not the deepest, steepest, longest, or most voluminous canyon on Earth, but it is no less dramatic nor breathtaking than the record holders. Only 17 million years were needed for the Colorado River to cut through 2 billion years of rock. Few places on earth offer such a lengthy geologic record.

The canyon is so large that we were unable to put it all in a single print. The section featured in this model contains the most popular portion of the South Rim, from the tip of West Rim Drive to Yaki Pt Road, and across the Colorado River to Shiva Temple, nearly one vertical mile above the river's shore. Having this piece on your desk will either bring back memories of the first time you gazed into the chasm, or inspire you to finally go see it for yourself.

Model scale is 1:171200
Model covers an area approximately 8 by 8 miles
Altitudes covered: 2337' to 7615'
There is never any vertical exaggeration in TinyMtn models.

This TinyMtn model is in Shapeways' "Ceramic" material, which consists of 3D-printed clay with binder, which is then hand-glazed and fired. When you receive the model it will be ready for display. "Ceramic" models are understandably brittle, even more than either the "Sandstone" or "White Strong and Flexible" models. You can get it wet, leave it outside, and you don't need to seal it. Read more about this beautiful material here.

TinyMtn models have been optimized for specific materials, and are not offered in other materials for strength or cost reasons. If you need one in another material, please click the links above or contact us and we'll try to accommodate your request.
