Thanks Ron:D

What type is the source data?

My customer does not have it yet what do you suggest? There is a plugin called demshape but it crashs every time I try it. It uses dem files.

Thanks Ron

Accutrans 3D converts DEM files to good LightWave files. You have quite a bit of control of how your DEM files convert. There's also some other height map formats it supports, I think. It also does 100 other things quite well. You can try it for free.

Website looks a bit dated, but it's one of the best and well maintained 3D converters out there: http://www.micromouse.ca/

Accutrans is an excellent program. I've used it quite a bit lately to check models for watertightness before they're converted for 3D printing.
