Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi, I'm a newbie. How could I export data about level curves? I would like to reproduce a portion of map, starting from printing differents heights. I tried to export from the site, osm file... but when i opened it in QGIS no layer about level curves. Thanks.

I think you might be talking about height contours. These are not in OpenStreetMap at all. You have to generate them from other data sources. How exactly you would do that and what tools you would use depends on what you need to achieve. Various people have documented their approaches on the wiki e.g. here https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Contour_relief_maps_using_mapnik - there is even a tool that will generate something that looks like OSM data from SRTM: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Srtm2Osm

Thanks. Yes contours. I would like to print and cut them for each level of height. Paste and cut over a easy-to-find material whith the correct width (scaled). Then paste them level on level to reproduce hills near my home. I will try your links
