After re-sizing for the bed and slicing on a 0.25mm layer SOLID I played the 3dprint.
And here is the result:


Now you can see just how useful a real object like this map would be for travelers, mountain climbers search and rescue. Potentially one could cut a portion of the relief bump map and scale it up then 3dprint a larger one. Here is another photo of the outline of the 3DPrintUK doing England.
