He is the creator of Mineways, a free program that lets you select a model from your Minecraft world and have it 3D printed by Sculpteo.com and others.

On his booth, Eric presented great 3D printings made with Mineways. One of them was the very beautiful Solamar designed by Sterling Babcock. We are proud that he chose us for 3D printing his creation. We told you about this model a few weeks ago. It is a very demanding piece, which includes many small details and colors.

We 3D printed it using our Multicolor material. 16 million colors available, printed in 0.1mm layers with a fine mineral powder. After the printing, we inject cyanoacrylate glue into the object. It becomes hard as porcelain.

Here is what Eric told us about kids’ reactions when they visited the booth and discovered the printings:

“It was very popular! Kids loved looking at all the details and taking it apart.”
