By now you’ve probably heard of the recent announcement that Minecraft will soon support the use of 3D printers for the creation of custom-made Minecraft blocks.
The announcement also revealed the addition of a few new features that will help Minecraft grow more efficiently, including the ability to make seeds by simply dragging and dropping blocks into the 3D printer.
The new features will allow Minecraft players to use a more flexible method of creating seeds than they have been able to do with the previous generation of Minecraft games.
With a 3D scanner, you can now make the seed in the 3DS Max and other 3D scanners, and then you can simply drop a block into the printer and it will take care of the rest.
In addition to making the seeds easier to work with, the 3d scanner can also be used to help automate the process of creating a seed, a task that was previously performed manually.
3D printing is also becoming a standard for many other 3d-sensing devices, including printers that allow you to scan objects or objects in the environment with your eyes, a method that is not possible with 3D scans using traditional scanners.
Minecraft is currently available on the 3ds Max, but it will be making an appearance on the Nintendo Switch, and will come with support for all 3D scanning tools available on other platforms.
Minecraft players have been asking for more options for making seeds for a while, and the announcement of the 3DPrinting API allows players to make more custom blocks.
