Texture pack support
How to start

Post comment (Allready 329)


Schematic2Blueprint is a program to slize MineCraft Schematic export files into single planes. Some people like I myself lack the creativity to build something great in MineCraft, but we still enjoy building stuff. With this program, it is possible to take awesome stuff other people made (and released as Schematic files) and generate a blueprint out of them for rebuilding them.
It also supports exports in either PNG images for the single layers or animated GIF files.

It is also usefull for finding hidden stuff in the schematics, for example, the Millennium Falcon (see below) contains a hidden smuggler chamber that most people probably wouldn't even expect.

A great source for such Schematic files is the website

Texture pack support

Schematic2Blueprint supports MineCraft texture packs of the size 16x16. The process to do this is similar to the normal install process of the texture pack. You have to take the terrain.png and items.png images out of the texturepack, then open the Schematic2Blueprint jar file in an archive program like WinZip, go to the directory /klaue/mcschematictool/ inside it and replace the terrain.png and items.png there with those of the texture pack.

The Schematic used in the screenshots is "Millennium Falcon Flying.schematic", which is, as the name implies, the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars. Megatech rebuilt it inside MineCraft and was nice enough to let people have the schematic of it, downloadable here.

How to start

You'll need java version 6, but since MineCraft itself needs java, you'll probably allready have it.

If everything works, you can just double-click the bat (windows) or the sh (linux, mac (probably)).

Schematic2Blueprint (All operating systems - jar) (667 KB, zip)
The source is contained inside the jar file.

Oracle pulled a fast one on us, newest (Oracle) Java versions have horrible licencing. So either choose 1.8, the last proper version, or chose OpenJDK:
Java 1.8 via
Newest Java via

Would be nice if you would drop a link back to me if you put it in another forum or extend it. As for the rest, you're only bound to the licence of JNBT. See the Licence directory in the jar file for the full licence text.

Schematic2Blueprint also uses the GIF encoder from FM Software

hiya, is thee an easier way to see the levels at the side. they are so close togther you cannot see which one your going to land on.

#328 Klaue wrote at 05/06/2021 04:47 PM (EST):
Try clicking on the slider and then using the scroll wheel on the mouse. that might work (I have no schematic here to test it). Or make the window bigger. There's no other way I'm afraid.
vanilla minecraft has (had?) a height limit that made most builds work well

#326 Klaue wrote at 03/31/2021 04:34 PM (EST):
install java, then double click the jar. or if something like winrar opens, use then try again.
Just keep in mind this thing is really outdated.

nice but how do i edit it?

#323 Klaue wrote at 03/29/2021 04:17 PM (EST):
this is just a viewer, you can't edit. Edit where the schematic came from in the first place, I guess, in worldedit or so. If that's still a thing, I haven't played MC in years now

Awesome program. It's what I've been searching for, but so much more awesome. I would like to know where I can get the copy of those Millennium Falcon schematics though.

#317 Klaue wrote at 01/18/2021 05:48 PM (EST):
Thanks, tho I don't know of how much use that still is. It's not been updated since Minecraft 1.9, 4 years ago, so it probably has some issues with newer schematics

As for the falcon, the original site is offline, but I guess it's this one, creator is the same:
