China (People’s Republic of China) is the third-largest landmass among countries, behind Russia and Canada. It’s slightly larger than the United States, which is the fourth largest country in the world. It borders Mongolia, Burma (Myanmar), Russia, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, India, Bhutan, Laos, Vietnam, North Korea, Nepal, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan. Also, China’s coastlines add up to 14,500 km (9,010 mi) along the Yellow Sea, East China Sea, and the South China Sea. It’s a rapidly growing economy and is the most populous in the world with over 1.4 billion people. The capital city is Beijing. But its largest city is Shanghai.
What can I use a 3D model in STL format for?
STL model of China can be used for various purposes:
- Making physical models from plastic or photopolymer using 3D printers
- Making models of wood or metal using CNC machines
- Making a high-resolution relief using 3D laser markers
- Making of “master forms” for duplication of products using foam polystyrene or concrete
- Creating computer graphics
- Creation of low-polygonal models for computer games
What is the resolution of the 3D model of China?
With the development of technology, it is becoming possible to produce more and more precise relief models.
For example, there are 3D printers that can print models with a layer height of 0.16 mm, 0.1 mm, 0.05 mm, or even less. These devices require high-quality models. But a higher-quality 3D model contains more polygons and has a larger file size. One of the challenges is to find a compromise between the file size of the STL model, which would be convenient to work with, and the desired quality of the finished product.
The 3D model of China has a fairly large size and many polygons.
How do I change the parameters of the STL model of China?
You can easily resize the model in any program that allows you to import STL files.
In addition to changing the scale in width, length, and height, you can add a higher base. You can also use anti-aliasing tools, add bulk text, reduce the number of polygons, etc.
