Awhile back, we had a chance to look at a video by Eric Haines which touched on 3D printing of Minecraft models.  Today, we have an opportunity to talk a little bit about what goes into printing one of these models!  We sit down with Alexander Boden, who goes into some detail on how these incredible models are created.  We get to see a model go from the game to the printing and prep stage, while Alex tells us about it along the way.  If you ever wondered how 3D printing worked - and wanted to see a Minecraft village go from "game model" to "real model" - this is definitely worth a watch.  Take a look!

Looks pretty cool, would be cool to print out huge maps of buildings!
Also, nobody gives a crap if you're first, leave a decent comment or don't comment at all.

To have on your desk and admire. The same reason why people hang pictures on their walls.

Does anyone know if this would work with a MakerBot 3D printer? And yes, i know it can only print 1 color at a time.
