How to Turn 8-Bit Character Sprites into 3D Printable Models

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.

To use the Shape Carving Editor to make your own models take a look at Mikola’s blog which has all of the instructions how to use the app along with all of the thinking behind the project…. 

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

    That is Awesome. I am wondering If there is going to be an editor for 16-Bit sprites?(32×32) now I can make my own voxel models.
