After getting a little familiar with Minecraft and with its logic related to the construction of buildings and objects, you have a question: is it possible to build a circle within the game? Mojang’s title is known for its cube-based world, in which there are only “angular” objects.
In today’s guide, I’ll show you how to make a circle in minecraft using whatever material you have available. First of all, I’ll give you some advice on which materials should be best suited for making a circle, depending on where you are going to build it. Then I will show you a simple procedure for ordering the blocks to create a circle and I will give you some tips to get the design of this geometric figure, according to the size you prefer.
How to make a circle in Minecraft step by step
For build a circle in Minecraft , it is necessary to understand with what material it is better to make circles. There are hundreds of different materials that can be found in the world of Minecraft or obtained by processing them.
The choice of material is important if you need to use the circle as a decoration for an interior or as an element to be placed outside.
Take for example the case where you want to build a circle on an interior wall of your shelter. In this case, the material you can use may be one of the many available, according to your personal tastes. However, if you have to build a circle on the outside, the use of destructible materials could ruin your construction, such as the wood or the crystal.
A circle can also be useful if you want to trace the perimeter of an area of a building you are about to build, such as a house, villa, palace, or even a castle. In this case it will be necessary to use resistant materials for the external walls, such as concrete or there rock .
I remind you that you don’t have to use blocks to build a circle, but you can also use the many tools present in Minecraft, such as torches , fences or plant or dig it directly into the ground, to fill its circumference with Waterfall or magma .
Furthermore, the quality of the material is not the only factor to consider. Depending on the size of the circle, you will need to find a varying amount of resources, which may take some time to collect all of them.
How to easily create a circle in Minecraft
For create a circle in Minecraft the first step you need to take is to find a suitable area for your construction (e.g. a land area, if you need to draw a circle on the ground).
In the example that I propose below, I will show you the construction of a circle with a diameter of 16, arranged horizontally on flat ground.
To get this type of circle, place 6 blocks horizontally and, from these extremes, add in both sides from the lines of 3 blocks on the next line.
Now, keep adding 2 rows of blocks this time from 2 units at the extremes.
At this point continue the construction by arranging others 2 blocks perpendicular to those already present on each side and finally add others 3 following the same principle.
The result of this procedure will lead you to the construction of a semicircle. What you will now have to do is repeat the same procedure that I indicated in the previous lines on the other side, to complete the circle.
Useful solutions to build a circle in Minecraft
In the previous chapter I explained how to start building a circle, indicating a specific size, just to give an example. However, what should you do if you want to build a smaller circle or a larger circle? Well, you can rely on external tools, online and apps.
Between online tools that I recommend you to use to get the circle design scheme in Minecraft is the circle generator Pixel (Pixel Circle Generator) by DonatStudios.com available for free at this link.
Its use is simple: once you get to the web page, use the fields length y height to set the length of the area you want to work in.
I advise you to set the value 6 or a higher one to have a geometric figure that has the slightest appearance of a circle. After entering the value in one of the two fields, the schema will be generated automatically. THE red squares correspond to the position of the blocks that you will have to reproduce in the world of Minecraft.
If you want to build an oval shape instead of a perfect circle, uncheck the box Circle of force and indicates values for length y height . Also, if you wish, you have the option to set the outline of the circle to set the stroke thickness or fill of the geometric shape.
To do this, use the drop-down menu to choose the values thick (continuous track), Thin (thin line) or Full (filled circle).
Do you want to share the project with a friend? In this case, use the keys SVG or PNG to download a copy of the image in these formats and then send it by email or other file sharing tools, such as messaging applications, social media (Facebook or similar) or file transfer tools, depending on your needs.
In addition to the solution that I presented to you in the previous lines, I also recommend you Pixel circle generator (Pixel Circle Generator) by CytoDev . This online tool, while not designed for Minecraft, allows you to set a radius of the circle to get a layout outline. However, it is not possible to generate ovals or export the project, other than using screen capture tools, such as the ones I mentioned in this guide.
In case you want to set the stroke thickness of the circle circumference, you have to go up ON the lever you find next to Continuous circle .
Application for mobile phones and tablets
In addition to the online tools I told you about in the previous chapter, I also recommend a few applications available for Android And iOS which can help you make wheel designs.
For, Android, for example, the application Circle for Minecraft available. Once you have downloaded and installed it on your device, use the button Install on pc of the Play Store, start it and in its main screen you will find a drop-down menu with which to configure the method of generating the circular diagram.
You can choose the options Size (diameter) or Radio – In the first case you can set the diameter of the circle, while in the second case you have to specify the radius value.
After writing the value, the circle will be automatically generated, which you can reproduce in the world of Minecraft. In case you want to export the project, tap the button Save image to keep the image in PNG format in the folder Download of Android.
If you own a iPhone or a iPad you can use the XiB rims , available for free on the App Store. Then go to the link I gave you via your device and tap the button Get .
Once done, unlock the download and installation via Face ID, Touch ID or iCloud account password and press the button You open to start the XiB circles .
After starting the application, press icon of the circle located at the top left, and press the value next to the writing Select diameter to set the diameter of the circle.
At this point, press the button Show circle to generate the outline of a circle.
An interesting feature of this app is the value that is displayed next to Blocks , above the generated circle project. This value indicates the number of blocks you will need to build the circle and thus gives you an idea of the amount of resources you will need to collect in Minecraft.
