This is how you turn your Minecraft creations into 3D models

The Minecraft Team recently released the Better Together Update, designed to unify the console, mobile and Windows 10 PC versions of the game under one single Minecraft. It includes cross-platform play, infinite worlds, the community Marketplace and servers (which are coming soon). For Windows 10 PC players, there’s also integration with Paint 3D and, making it easy to export and share 3D creations and inspire others.

Here’s how you can create your own 3D Minecraft content in Windows

Open a new creative world or an existing creative world 

If you are not using a creative world, you will need to enter creative mode by opening the in-game menu, enabling cheats, and changing your Personal game mode to “Creative”. This will allow you to use cheats, which are needed to enable the new Structure Block in-game. You will also need to change the Trust Player Permissions dropdown to “Operator”. This will allow you to use cheats, which are needed to enable the new Structure Block in-game.

Build the object you’d like to export from Minecraft

Give your in-game player a Structure Block

Now you will need to give your in-game player a Structure Block by pressing “/” and typing the following command: “/give @p structure_block” without the quotation marks.

Now place the Structure Block on the ground near the creation you would like to export by holding the Structure Block in your characters hand, and right-clicking on the ground near your creation.

Right-click on the Structure Block, and fill in the bounding coordinates for your creation

You will need to fill in the X, Y, and Z coordinates for both the “Size” and “Offset”. Then enter a name for your creation, and select “3D Export”.


Select “Export” and to export your structure to Remix3D

This will also prompt you to save the model locally in File Explorer.
