NYC 3D Prints using OGLE: OpenGLExtractor + Google Earth

Using Google Earth and OGLE, 3D “prints” of buildings in NYC – “The 3D buildings OGLE’d from Google Earth are not ready to be 3D printed off the bat. Each building is a composition of multiple vertical volumes that have walls and a ceiling but no floor.
