Current supported minecraft version: 1.9 - Many thanks to Inostupid Streams for updating it
It'll probably still work with newer or older versions
09/01/2016: Update to 1.9 by Inostupid Streams, thanks
04/18/2013: Update to 1.5.1. Added 30 blocks and 23 Items!
08/27/2012: Update to 1.3.2. Added additional tree types, sandstone types, 10 Blocks and 3 items.
03/11/2012: Update to 1.2.3. Added 2 Items and 2 Blocks. Also added a workaround for the "ShortTag cannot be cast to IntTag"-Error (that is actually a problem with the exporting program, not with S2B)
01/22/2012: Update to final 1.1.0. 20 items and 13 blocks added. Added print functionality, Marker functionality and fixed the memory problem.
11/7/2011: Update to beta 1.8.1 and various bugfixes. 10 items and 22 blocks added.

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 mcschematics.com
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.
The main GUI:
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 Java.com
Newest Java via adoptOpenJDK.com
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

Silly question, but would you open to updating this program or making a new version of it for money?
I'd buy it. Either Patreon or something else.
#346 Klaue wrote at 10/03/2021 04:46 PM (EST):
You'd probably be the only one, and I haven't played Minecraft for years, so no :)
Maybe you can get someone else to do it, it's open source after all.
but from what I remember I think by now there are other programs that basically do the same as this one did, so just google around a bit. I think I saw one or two mentioned on reddit when I googled the name of my program out of curiosity

You have? I've looked all over and haven't found anything. Litematica is an in-game mod that messes with my other mods.
I really love how S2B is an independent program.

looked it up again, it was https://www.mineprints.net/
Upload is hidden top-right and below and below you can set the layer. It shows everything up to the selected layer, but I think that could only help

i cannot use the function count blocks in Schematics2Blueprints... it just doesn't show
#344 Klaue wrote at 08/29/2021 06:34 PM (EST):
I'm afraid you'll have to life with that. The last update was for minecraft version 1.9, 5 years ago - any blocks added afterwards may break it, which is probably what causes your issue.

OMG someone PLEASE update this to 1.16.5!!!!!
#331 LordVenom77 wrote at 05/26/2021 11:47 AM (EST):
Is there a way to add new blocks to this, or update it to modern minecraft?
#332 LordVenom77 wrote at 05/26/2021 02:47 PM (EST):
Or at least update it with the blocks from 1.12.
#333 Klaue wrote at 05/26/2021 04:38 PM (EST):
Sure, the code is there, have at it.
But I guess you meant I should do it and that's probably never gonna happen, I haven't played MC in multiple years.
Hell I don't even know if there's still worldedit (or another way to export schematics) with current MC
