coast to coast

Intended as a joke item, each coaster in this set represents one Canadian province or territory—the higher the alcohol sales per capita, the less even the surface of the coaster, and therefore the less stable the drink resting on top.

To make them, I used Processing to create a 2D greyscale visualization of the data, which I used as a heightmap to create a 3D object. I then exported them as STL files, and printed them on a Makerbot Replicator.
