Alex Delderfield in Designer Spotlight at Shapeways

Our very own AD-Edge (who used to write for BlenderNation) is featured on the Shapeways homepage this week with his Minecraft models. He talks about the history of his project and how they went viral.

My favorite quote:

How did you learn how to design in 3D?

Mostly self taught, but I have to credit a lot of it to the community which surrounds Blender. Without the community there wouldn't be the amount of support, documentation and tutorials there are these days. Especially now with the more serious sites that have popped up, focusing on providing high quality tutorials.

    Is there no copyright attached to Minecraft figures, or are your figures just based on the minecraft style?
