You Can Now Get A 3D Printed Model Of Your Minecraft Masterpiece

Some of the creations people make in Minecraft border on “Seven Wonders” style grandeur. Those who make them are obviously proud, but their creations are just digital imprints that only last as long as the server or hard drive hosting it stays around. To help combat this particularly depressing scenario, FigurePrints has started to make 3D prints of Minecraft creations. …
