Mariorama: Super Mario Gets 3D Printed

Ok, I need one of these on my desk. Now. This awesome full-color sandstone Super Mario Bros. sculpture is actually rendered on a 3D printer. Metin Seven of Seven’s Heaven created his Mariorama sculpture using Shapeways’ 3D printing technology. Isn’t technology great?

The diorama perfectly captures the flat, pixelated world of the Mushroom Kingdom, complete with Mario atop a fat green pipe, a still-in-the-shell Koopa and a yet-to-be-flattened Goomba. This tiny scene measures just 4.7″ (w) x 3.8″ (h) x 1.9″ (d) and would look great sitting on any retro-gamer’s desk.

The best part about this is that you can order one for yourself over at Shapeways. At appx $83 (USD), it’s a bit expensive – but that’s just due to the still relatively high costs of 3D printing. I wonder how much it would cost to print the entire World 1-1 map?

[Thanks for the tip, Metin!]
