You might have the feeling that it is 3D printed, but it is not, it is
printed on paper and it is in 2D, so there is not a real relief to
touch.

We start from a 3D models digitally rendered and then we print on high quality paper, to show the relief of the territory, through the elaboration of Digital Elevation Model data.

We follow the production of prints in all its steps, communicating directly with the laboratory to which we entrust the printing process.

Quickly FAQ

No! Maps appear to be Raised Relief Maps or 3D printed due a technique that tries to give through lights and shadows relief to the ground (Shaded Relief). They are flat to touch and printed on paper.

Text on the map can be difficult to read, for several reasons. Technique used to create 3D effect can covering some of the text and also due font size. In particular it can be hard to read maps' legend with small print size, it will be visible but a magnifying glass might be needed to read the legend text. So if you want to be able to read text we recommend to order a larger print to ensure a better readability.

Maps are to be considered as piece of art and art decor and not as technical map. This means that the colors may vary significantly from the original and text may not be fully legible.
