    So I had this idea where at the BCSN shop
    We could sell like mini figures of our skins
    How do we do this?:

    We can use a 3rd printer but you don't have to

    So you write your username and information and it gets sent to you
    Just an idea

    So do not hate on this thread

    Does Zach, Azza, Quick, or even Matty have enough money for a 3D printer? And who's going to do the 3D modeling?

    I've been thinking about this for a long time :p

    Making little figurines would probably be a very unrealistic idea though. 3D printing is very costly.

    I think the hardest part of this would actually be writing a program to 'transelate' a model to something the printer understands.
    It would be very cool, but the closest you will get is just a picture of your model in Cinema4D

    I looked up 3D printers, the cheapest one is $5,000. This is not counting materials or the programs for 3D modeling of even the cost of shipping the product to the person.

    [Edit] Found a cheaper one for $350.

    I can use the 3D printer at my school. The figures will need painting after though

    1. Use sethblings player statue mc edit filter

    2. Use mineways to export for 3d printing

    3. Done

    That still doesn't solve the problem of the 3D printer. We would need $350 for the darn thing itself. Then we would need to factor in materials, repairs, shipping and handling, and programming.

    That's why it's not gonna happen. There's no bux to throw around

    tbh at this point i don't think we'd have a large enough player base to make an ok sum of revenue on this, depending on all the costs

    Anyone read my post, i will get your playername, use an MCEdit filter to put the statue in the game, use mineways to export it, then 3D print it.

    It would cost more money to make the figures than sell them
