THE STORY

One day, back from climbing the Mt.Rainier I was re-visiting the trail with my phone and while I was so proud and happy of the hike, I felt that that line on a flat map didn’t quite represented the awesomeness of the day spent conquering the top. So I really wanted to view my track in 3D, to see the crests and valleys that I crossed.

So, back on my laptop, I searched around the web to find a way to upload the track to a trails sharing site, and export it as a filetype readable in google earth.
Great! now I was seeing my route in 3D.

Then, using some open source map data, and CAD modelling skills I managed to build a digital mountain and 3D printed it, and it looked amazing.

so, why not automate all the steps into one-click tool to turn gps trails into 3D models?

And that’s what we do at nicetrails; you can take any trail from your GPS tracker, phone or trail-sharing site, visualise it instantly in 3D, and turn it into a real object.

With the magic of 3D Printing.
