Hi there,
I'm here to talk about a discovery I've made, which lets me make 3D printing models from Minecraft Creations! On a site called Shapeways.com, I made a few models that you can order!
Here are they:
http://www.shapeways.com/model/420307/small_blocky_island.html?gid=ug
http://www.shapeways.com/model/418763/blocky_village.html?gid=ug
http://www.shapeways.com/model/418742/blocky_house.html?gid=ug
I want to make more, so stay tuned!
If you want to look them up at shapeways, type in the search bar: "Blocky"

YOU CAN POST YOUR CREATION BELOW, I WILL MAKE A
3D MODEL OF IT!

Interesting venture. I remember talking to the Minetoys salespeople about items like this, though more about single blocks and tools to go with the figures made from sandstone. So, using the flexible plastics then?

Well, you can use A TON of materials there, but I recommend the plastics, because they have the brightest color and are less fragile.

That's true, you make it out of the materials best suited to it's use. I've purchased from Shapeways before, quite expensive if you're on the other side of the world and I know of some local 3d printers that could churn objects out of high quality polystone for good prices. But I was interested in Minetoy's processes and the results were satisfactory.
