"3D Printing - Using LiDAR Data to Create 3D City Models "



This workshop session will demonstrate the physical outputs that are possible when combining the power of GIS, 3D modelling, and 3D printing. Participants will be taught to generate a 3D city model of areas in Hong Kong by using LiDAR data from CSDI Portal and use a 3D printer to print out the model.

Our workshop will mainly focus on publicly available resources for acquiring spatial data, software, and processes for converting data into 3D models. You can turn digital spatial data into reality and even bring home the 3D model as a souvenir for free!

Workshop outline:
- Learn the basics of geospatial 3D modelling and 3D printing
- Acquire spatial data and prepare the 3D city model for printing
- Demonstration of 3D printing
- Bring home the 3D-printed city model

Join us to learn more about GIS, 3D modelling, and 3D printing with hands-on session!
