This dataset consists of 10 STL-format files representing select geological intervals around the Eagle Butte meteorite impact structure in southeastern Alberta. The zip file also includes a PDF document explaining the model and containing metadata about the printed version. The model vertical exaggeration is 25 times and the actual geospatial representation encompasses an area of approximately 59 km x 59 km to a depth of 1.7 km.

In 2019, a high-resolution 90-layer 3D geological model was created in Petrel software representing the majority of Alberta's subsurface. The Geological Framework of Alberta has been developed to support science-based decision making and can be used to inform regulatory decisions related to the safe and sustainable management of the resources in Alberta. A portion of the high-resolution model was converted to a simplified 10-layer model. The layers were then exported to STL-format files for 3D printing.
