Minecraft player and YouTuber ItsJustJumby posted a video detailing how to create a 3D printer in Minecraft using 10 chests and 16 colors of wool. The 3D printer can create an object of your design in a 6x9x10 area.
3D printing is an additive manufacturing process which creates an object from a 3D model and builds it layer by layer. The 3D printer in Minecraft uses the same concept and allows players to create any design imaginable, so long as it’s within the 6x9x10 area. Maybe an ambitious player can make the print size even larger.
ItsJustJumby explains how you can create your own 3D printer in Minecraft in the video below. Creating the printer uses a lot of items including: 846 Redstone Repeaters, 1124 Hoppers, 9181 Comparators, 10,539 Redstone Dust and 20,103 Command Blocks.
Players can also 3D print their Minecraft creations from their world and have a real Minecraft building to show off to friends.
