Minecraft offers a wonderful platform for creative people to mess around in, as long as you're okay with your various creations never existing in anything other than a virtual, voxel-based world. That's how things used to be, at any rate. Now, thanks to FigurePrints, you can spend some cash to turn your Minecraft dreams into a reality (via Kotaku).
FigurePrints will create a full 3D replica of any chunk of Minecraft world that you choose, with the price dictated by the complexity of the creation. To get started, you'll need to download a Minecraft World Exporter from the company's website. The catch is that the Exporter only supports Windows PCs (XP or later), so Mac users will have to Boot Camp it. Or steal someone else's PC at gunpoint.
