Mikola Lysenko has created an app to turn an 8-Bit character sprite into a 3D printable model with his Shape Carving Editor using WebGL and the Shapeways API. You can see some of his 8-Bit voxel sprite models in his Shapeways Store.

The source code for the client is available on GitHub, so feel free to download it and try it out.
