Flickr user Post Apocalyptic Research Institute (PARI) has posted a gallery of images showing off their real-life recreation of a village created entirely in Minecraft.
The village started out as a simple Minecraft project, but utilizing a ZPrinter 650 - a 3D printer - the user was able to create a desktop model of the village. After he exported and printed out the 3D model, PARI was able to bring full color to the village using CAD software and tools. The image above shows the village as it stood in-game in Minecraft, while the gallery below shows off the real-life recreation.
