In a world where everything consists of squares and cubes, creating anything that’s perfectly round in your Minecraft world is impossible. But if you’ve got your heart to assail circles or spheres, here’s a trick: you’ll be compared by stacking blocks.
Building a circle relies on techniques almost like those used when building with slanted lines — you create both with small segments of blocks.
To build circles in Minecraft like this one, follow these steps:
- Construct the longest line segment. It should be, at most, 1/3 the length of the circle’s diameter.
- Construct a shorter line segment just behind the primary one.
- Continue making shorter lines, with the difference being smaller and smaller whenever. This step composes the arc at the top of the circle.
- Turn around and repeat. When you estimate a circle in Minecraft, it should have 4-way symmetry: Whether you’re looking north, south, east, or west, the circle should look equivalent. Thus, the method of constructing all sides of the circle is exactly equivalent.
- Fix any lopsidedness. If a segment looks too long, destroy a block at the top and extend the adjacent segment to fill the gap. If a segment looks too short, just do an equivalent thing in reverse.

Constructing a sphere in Minecraft
Spheres are much trickier to build than circles — it’s a lot more difficult to estimate a three-dimensional rounded object than a flat one. But there’s a clever way you can build a sphere Follow this instruction:
- Build a flat circle whose diameter is the same as your sphere’s diameter. This is the ring that will go around the middle of your sphere.
- Build two more circles in the same way, except that these circles are vertical (with their diameter perpendicular to the ground) and surround the sphere lengthwise and widthwise. The result should be a cluster of three rings, each of which intersects the others twice.
- Fill out the sphere by building extra circles parallel to the primary one, using the second and third circles as guides.
Spheres can be used for all kind-of things — dome-shaped roofs, balloons, and blimps are just a few. Three-dimensional rounded objects are handy for making structures smoother and more elegant.
