I would go to http://www.opentopography.org/ for lidar data. You’ll want to download a DEM as a TIFF for your area of interest.
Then open the TIFF in photoshop or similar and invert the image. Then add a 1 px border of black to the DEM. This will create the walls of the 3d model.
Then create a new plane/relief object in a 3d modeling software and apply the DEM as a displacement map to the plane. This will extrude the plane into a 3d object.
Cap the object and export as a STL file and send to your printer.
