This is what the map of the first Zelda looks like live thanks to 3D printing

Zelda map

Many are the lovers of the video game world who, today, do not mind paying large amounts of money to own an original copy of their favorite video game. One of the most demanded by collectors, without a doubt, the original copy of the first Legend of Zelda that hit the market, a video game that at the time was only available for the NES in 1986 and that was characterized by being presented in a gold-colored cartridge along with a clue book and a game map.

Specifically, it is the map of the first Legend of Zelda one of the reasons a collector may or may not want to get hold of a particular game unit as very few people still keep it and far fewer owners have it in good condition. Due to this it is not surprising that some collector has decided to make the map a reality thanks to the use of a 3D printer. As a detail, tell you that this map exists, you can see the photos in this same post, and by it a known user by the name of Willard McFarland has paid thousands of dollars.

An unknown user manages to design and manufacture the map of the first Legend of Zelda thanks to 3D printing.

Unfortunately, I do not know who is the company or user behind its design and manufacture. What we do know is that it took the designer about six months to create this peculiar Zelda map in Minecraft. After this laborious work, the entire design had to be adapted so that it could be manufactured by a 3D printer that needed no less than 24 hours of uninterrupted work to get it finished.

Without a doubt, an incredibly laborious process that, especially after learning about the large amount of money that someone has been willing to pay for a map like this, will encourage other people to develop new maps of famous games and make them in a print 3D so we can earn good money.
