Here is an incredibly simple way to design the floor plan for buildings in Minecraft.
I have used this system with many classes as a Minecraft educator, and teacher of critical and creative thinking classes. It was great when getting classes to design their Mars Bases.
Simply open the file in Microsoft excel, or Google Sheets and design away.
All you need to do is shade each cell the colour you want, and your Minecraft block by block design will take shape. You can also select multiple cells and shaded then in one go, making design quick and easy.
Also share it on your Google Classroom to allow multiple students to collaborate in real time on a design.
Share it with your students on Google Classroom, and instantly have students working on their individual designs.
There is no better, or more simple way to design your Minecraft floor plans, than with this simple system!
