Tales from the Engineering Floor – Minecraft 3D CAD


Since the oil & gas industry can’t afford Rm200 lunches for their bosses and expats, we need to cut costs. Here’s a suggestion.

Since we have 6 year olds who can build Star Destroyers and computers in Minecraft, we should use Minecraft as a replacement for 3D CAD  software. The size of a Minecraft block is 1m3, so if you scale correctly, you can have 10 blocks to represent 1m for a resolution of 10cm.

You can have public servers, walkthrus, flythrus, plus the price is right.

What say you?
