Picture of Build 3-D Papercraft Terrains: Minecraft Style
Some gamers need a Railgun, others choose an M1A1, most seem to desire an Energy Sword...but what we need is a pickaxe! That's right, our current favorite diversion from lab work is Minecraft. We didn't want the fun to stop on the screen, so we created giant, 3-D, papercraft Minecraft terrains on our walls and show you how to build your own. Enjoy.

This instructible shows you how to build giant 3-D Minecraft terrains on your wall using simple, raised papercraft panels. The papercraft panels use a modified version of our Panel Poster panels. They are fast to build, no glue is needed, and are easy to install and remove using our non-permanent adhesive blocks.

Buy scoring, assembly, and mounting materials to build your own terrains.

Here's a 7:47 minute video showing you how to build and install a panel for a similar project, Giant 3D Papercraft Space Invaders. The process is identical with these 2 exceptions:

  1. Before you fold the panel, flip the panel over (picture side down).
  2. Install the tape strips after you fold. This helps you align the strips to the score lines.

Measure the area you are installing on. Each panel is 2x2 inches (5.08x5.08 cm), so divide your width and length measurements by 2 (or 5.08) to get the maximum number of blocks you'll need in both directions. Now fire up Minecraft and make your epic terrain.

Really good idea! I'm trying to think of cheap ways to decorate my apartment and this is perfect! The only mistake I see is that you made the walls/ceiling of the spawner Mossy Cobble, when they're supposed to be regular Cobble. :)
