This is a PLA print, 110mm (4.3in) diameter model.
The print is intentionally very coarse with stepping of 0.4mm. The uniqueness of this print comes from the way the print is finished with 5-axis printing. Continents were printed in 5 axis conforming to the surface of the base. This allows to cover up the layered texture of the ordinary 3d print with custom patterns and goes beyond limitations of a standard 3d print. This technique can be used for a lot of different purposes, one of which to increase structural integrity to the printed objects.
