From the snowy mountains of Colorado, Donn Arrell, owner of Clinton Systems and topographical model maker extraordinaire, sent in a picture of his latest creation.
Donn CNC-machined this topographical map using Precision Board Plus PBLT-4, which is the lowest density of Precision Board that we manufacture, because his customer was interested in a highly-detailed model, but was very cost-conscious.
It’s interesting to note that despite the low density, the level of detail on the model is magnificent. A DWG CAD file containing the contour lines was the source for deriving the 3-D model, and the flat area on the far left is due to missing data from the NED file given to Donn for this project.
