Minecraft video shows lovely 3D-printed Minecraft village

A little while ago we threw a spotlight on this gorgeous model of a Minecraft village, ported from Minecraft into a CAD program, and then built with a 3D printer. Now, there's a video. A well-placed coin shows just how tiny the model is. It's total dimensions are just 360 x 250 x 60 mm. D'aww.

If only 3D printing wasn't so expensive, we'd find a way to carve a model of the glorious constructions on the PC Gamer server. We could stick some cogs in it, add some tilt-shift and shoot a pretty good reconstruction of the Game of Thrones intro, only with more Nyan cats. The model above was created with the Zprinter 650.

You can find plenty more images of tiny Minecraft worlds on the post apocalyptic research institute flickr account. Here are a few more choice picks from the recently uploaded sets.


Minecraft village made real with 3D printer

If you're really fond of something you've built in Minecraft and want to find a way to preserve it forever, here's one way to do it. Minecraft fan and Flickr user, post-apocalyptic research institute, has uploaded a series of photos showing a model of their Minecraft village created using a 3D printer. According to the description on the Flickr account, the 3D model of the village was exported into a CAD program for colouring before being printed using a Zprinter 650 machine. It's a pretty expensive process, but the results are quite lovely. Take a look.
