Mare Orientale imaged using a new prototyper that prints in plastic.  Lit from behind, you can just see the multi-rings that form the basin.  About 4 inches across and 2mm thick.  LOLA data, shell generated in Mathematica, shell thickened with GeoMagic Studio.  https://finkh.wordpress.com/2011/04/01/mare-orientale/ has some snapshots of the data.
