Pretty cool build in Minecraft and the 3d print in the corner.

Pretty cool build in Minecraft and the 3d print in the corner.

I ran across this project from the MIT media lab that involves printing a 3d object from Minecraft. Way cool. I haven’t had time to play with it yet so I’m posting it here in case some enterprising MindGear member wants to check it out. It would be a great tool for kids to build things in 3d with.

I doubt there is a kid out there that hasn’t played Minecraft. A couple weeks ago Kyle and some of the other boys in his Webelos den made speeches in front of the group for their communications activity pin. They could pick any topic they wanted. Half of them talked about Minecraft!
