I would like to export San Francisco in OSM so I can use it in Blender. The problem is that the zone is too big for OpenStreetMap so I have an error each time...

Do I have another way to export the whole city?

    What data do you want? Roads, buildings, land layers? What does "too big for Openstreetmap" mean? The whole world is in Openstreetmap. Is it just too big for your (unspecified) "export" procedure? – Spacedman Feb 28 '18 at 15:45
  • Take a look at this answer. It covers a number of options for downloading large areas of OSM data. – JoshC Feb 28 '18 at 15:48

You could use http://extract.bbbike.org/ and choose your area of interest. The export format can be Shapefile or OSM XML. Maybe you have to post process the data.

A other way is openstreetmap.org for SVG or Raster Export:

You can download all of the OSM data for California here: http://download.geofabrik.de/north-america/us/california.html

Data from this source is usually updated daily.

Is there a specific file format that you would prefer?
