Windows 10 Tip: Export your Minecraft creations to Remix3D.com

The Minecraft Team recently released the Better Together Update, designed to unify the console, mobile and Windows 10 PC versions of the game under one single Minecraft, which includes cross-platform play, infinite worlds, the community Marketplace and servers. And for Windows 10 PC players, integration with Paint 3D and Remix3D.com makes it easy to export and share 3D creations and inspire others.
Today, we’re going to show you how to get started creating your very own 3D content in Windows!
Start by opening a new creative world, or an existing creative world.
If you are not using a creative world, you will need to enter creative mode by opening the in-game menu, enabling cheats, and changing your Personal game mode to “Creative”. This will allow you to use cheats, which are needed to enable the new Structure Block in-game. You will also need to change the Trust Player Permissions dropdown to “Operator”. This will allow you to use cheats, which are needed to enable the new Structure Block in-game.

Build the object you’d like to export from Minecraft
 
Give your in-game player a Structure Block
Now you will need to give your in-game player a Structure Block by pressing “/” and typing the following command: “/give @p structure_block” without the quotation marks.

Now place the Structure Block on the ground near the creation you would like to export by holding the Structure Block in your characters hand, and right-clicking on the ground near your creation.

Right-click on the Structure Block, and fill in the bounding coordinates for your creation.
You will need to fill in the X, Y, and Z coordinates for both the “Size” and “Offset”. Then enter a name for your creation, and select “3D Export”.
 
Now select “Export,” and to export your structure to Remix3D!
This will also prompt you to save the model locally in File Explorer.

Add a description and tags to your 3D model to classify your content on Remix3D.
Once finished, select “Upload” and then “Visit Model” to go directly to our community and see our village created in Minecraft, after it has been uploaded to Remix3D.com!

Share your creations to social media directly from Remix3D and inspire your friends!
Check out your creation on Remix3D.com and select your social media of choice to share your creation with friends.

Windows 10 Tip: Make Start full screen

Happy Monday! Today, we’re going to show you how you can resize your Start screen, or make it full screen.

Windows 10 Tip: Five ways to personalize notifications on your PC

To get started, head to Settings > System > Notifications & actions‌ – or, if you’re on a Windows 10 PC, click here to open notifications & actions.
First, send notifications, reminders and alarms directly to the action center by right-clicking action center in your taskbar, then selecting Turn on quiet hours.

Stop notifications from showing during a presentation by turning on Hide notifications when I’m duplicating my screen. Or, keep them from showing on your lock screen when you’re not logged in by turning off Show notifications on the lock screen.

If you’re tired of seeing notifications from a particular app, turn them off next to the app under Get notifications from these senders – or, click on the app for more options.

You also always have the option to stop getting notifications on your PC by turning off Get notifications from apps and other senders.

Windows 10 Tip: Three ways to get started with OneNote

OneNote is a great way to collect important information from various sources and organize it for reference later, from thoughts and ideas to homework, meetings, and more!
Start by customizing your pens:

Choose a personal set of pens, pencils, and highlighters for inking. Choose Draw, then click the Add Pen button and select your favorite tool. From here, you can also choose the size and color, including fun effects for the pen like Rainbow, Galaxy, Silver, and Gold. Easily organize your pen gallery by dragging and dropping tools in the ribbon.
View multiple pages at once:

You can also look at multiple pages at once by clicking the View tab, then New Window – or, just press CTRL + M.
Check out the immersive reader:
Immersive Reader boosts comprehension by providing a distraction-free reading environment and breaking apart sentences into syllables, nouns, verbs, and adjectives. It’ll even read the text aloud to help with pronunciation! You can also improve your focus by switching to a dark or colored theme, making the columns narrower, adjusting text spacing, and more.

To get started, click View, choose Immersive Reader, and then customize your text and voice options. Best of all, Immersive Reader can read aloud text in images, so you can snap a photo of a book and reap the reading rewards.

Windows 10 Tip: See your 3D creations take life in Remix 3D

Last week, we announced new capabilities in Remix 3D – Parts and Remixes – an all-new way to experience the relationship between 3D content and see how it can transform and take new life when shared with a creative community.
Here’s how to get started with Parts and Remixes:
On any model page on Remix3D.com, you’ll see two new tabs: Parts and Remixes. Simply click on Parts and scroll down to see the individual parts that make up the model. A dog with a party hat and party favor may have three parts: the dog model, the hat model and the party favor model.

But what if someone remixes that dog and adds a birthday cake? That would appear under Remixes. The Remixes tab is a way to show how creators are building off other amazing creations. If someone remixed a model you created, their new design would point back to your original model in the Remixes tab.

If you’re working in the Paint 3D app, you can click on the Remix 3D tab, find a model and then click “Place in project” to start creating your own Remix!

Parts and Remixes will be available everywhere Paint 3D and Remix 3D are available. Head over here for tips on getting started with Paint 3D, and, in case you missed it, here’s last week’s Windows 10 Tip:
