Minecraft Worlds, 3D-Printed. They're Amazing.

Minecraft Worlds, 3D-Printed. They're Amazing.

Looking at these photos makes me want a 3D printer so bad. Printing figurines or other small items is one thing, but entire Minecraft worlds? Minecraft enthusiast Dave Russell used Mineways, an open source 3D printer program, to bring all these blocky builds to life.

If you're around Cambridge (Mass.), you can check these out for yourself this weekend at the Science Carnival.

    You can do it without a 3d printer. You send the file to some company and they send you back the printed piece. It's quite expensive though.

      And how does this company print it?... with a 3d printer?

        Yes but you don't need a 3d printer.

          Even though quite affordable ones are coming into the market?

          You do realize that 3D printing is a significant milestone in technology and is going to be very prevalent in our lives from here on out right?

            the affordable ones can't print anything this size and take 600 years to finish something using the full dimensions

              I looked into the full colour ones a while ago, the printer that does these is about $60,000.

            I never said anything about 3d printing being bad or anything like that. All I said was that you didn't need to buy a 3d printer, you can just get it printed for a fee by other people.
