Since I am an avid cyclist and recently discovered the GPX format I thought about how cool it would look If I could create a miniature model out of my recent ride as sort of a trophy and render it as a background image like seen above.

So I hit up Blender and modelled a bit...

...until I came up with another idea.

How awesome would it be to hold it actually in my hands ?

So I grabbed my GARMIN my 3D-Printer and some coffee and came up with this.

Not the final deal yet but on its way.

If you are interessted in having one similar track created or printed just drop me a line via Mail or twitter @xoryouyou

Big thanks to Ben from http://calvinrobotics.com/ for supplying me with initial data.
