[http://www.minecraft.net Minecraft] is a popular world builder computer game in which each voxel in an artificial world represents a block of material such as wood, dirt, stone, water, glass, etc. Players are immersed in a 3-D world in which each block can be mined, chopped, dug or harvested and rebuilt elsewhere. Players collect resources to build better tools, collect rare resources and begin to build civilizations on massively multiplayer servers. Every 10 minutes, night falls and enemies emerge. Players must fight, or build structures protect themselves. As the game progresses, players can mine materials like redstone which can be crafted into diodes, switches and triggers and allows users to build circuitry in this virtual world. YouTube videos show monumental constructions of working computers, automatic farming and mining and replica castles and civil structures. Millions of users interact in these creative virtual realms.

Introduction to Polycraft World

Polycraft World is a comprehensive mod for Minecraft designed by Students & Faculty at UT Dallas that introduces features ranging from petrochemical refining and harvesting of new ore types to the construction of polymers, plastics and many specialty items based on the new additions. Enterprising players can build tree taps and extract natural rubber from trees to build rubber blocks, pogo sticks and more. Adventurers can find above ground oilfields and mine custom minerals and elements including copper, tin, nickel, platinum, palladium, silver and more... Engineers can construct machining mills to make molds from metal ingots such as titanium, magnesium, manganese, cobalt, nickel, antimony, tungsten, platinum, bismuth and aluminum and from alloys such as brass and bronze. Materials scientists can create injection molders and extruders to melt process a whole range of polymers into running shoes, scuba gear, plastic bricks, a host of gripped tools and more... Aspiring chemical engineers, can advance into the age of oil through distillation columns, steam crackers, merox treatment units and chemical processors. This allows the production of increasingly sophisticated polymers and other materials that opens the door for overpowered items such as jet packs, scuba tanks, flame throwers and phase shifters. Though expansive, Polycraft World is actively played by players of all ages. We use our game to teach elementary kids all the way through college-aged students about science, chemistry, materials science, and engineering.

Learn about the Challenge: BEST Robotics Polycraft 3D Printing Challenge

We are working with BEST Robotics leadership to design a tailored, competitive challenge in an open world environment for BEST Robotics teams. For this challenge, teams will face a never-before-seen challenge in Polycraft World: a humanitarian crisis has led to Refugees needing a new community to call home, and fast! Using 3D Printers, Scanners, and recycling demolished materials, teams will build a Refugee Village with 3D printed houses and Community Buildings and advance their Village from dirt huts to Carbon Fiber Condos.

Each team will have a private island where they will 3D Print their way through a series of technology levels (dirt, wood, Polexiglas, LEGOs, etc.) and will accumulate points rewarding their efforts. If you want additional resources that aren't available on your island paradise, head to a Base Camp as a mining/harvesting outpost to grab the needed blocks and items. The competition will be divided into two stages – initially, teams will 3D Print 1 and 2 story buildings made out of dirt, wood, stone, and Polexiglas. In the second stage (i.e., “championship round”), teams will return to their private island and will build skyward with 3 and 4 story buildings made out of LEGO blocks, bronze, stainless steel, and carbon fiber. The highest scores will be awarded to teams that best solve the crisis by building a thriving Village for the Refugees.

While Minecraft knowledge will be helpful to teams, pre-existing Polycrafting knowledge will not be needed for teams to compete successfully.
