Mineways is here to help you print Minecraft models in 3D photo



Taking your Minecraft models to a 3D printer has always sounded like a fun weekend project, but it's one the majority of us have never gotten around to. This could change with Mineways, a free, open-source program that helps prep your virtual creation for existence as a physical model.
