3D printing has become so famous that once in a while you hear about new technologies being used to print 3D objects. The most recent technology in 3D printing is a software introduced by developer Eric Haines. The software, Mineways, helps users to send Minecraft creations to a 3D printing service.
Minecraft: Minecraft is a game, where users use building blocks to create different design, e.g. buildings, houses, villas, towers, etc. In order to use Mineways, you will need to be familiar with the game, since you can only print designs from the game.
How will you print your Minecraft creations?
To send your Minecraft creations to Mineways, you should first have an exported world map from Minecraft. Using that, you can transport the Minecraft creations to Mineways, and with the help of the software, you can send it to the 3D printing services like Shapeways. This kind of printing services will help you in printing your designs into reality.
