Minecraft is an interactive open world video game that includes the ability to construct things out of texture cubes and create 3D environments. Scenes are essentially comprised of a cluster of cubes which behave similarly to a point cloud. FME has many point cloud tools which enables it to interact with Minecraft in different ways relatively easily including the use and sharing of data from different sources with its platform.
