What is BuildPaste?

BuildPaste is a growing platform for Minecraft players to exchange and showcase their builds. It enables players to copy and paste structures into their world, upload their own creations, and share them with a community of creative players.

How to get started:

To get started, follow these steps:

  1. Click in the top right corner and create an account
  2. Click on Edit Profile in the top right or navigate there through your profile
  3. Type in your Minecraft in-game username
  4. Open Minecraft and open a world with cheats on
  5. Type '/paste'

Your Buildpaste and Minecraft account will link automatically and you can now copy any build you want or upload your own creations

Is this not working? If you can't seem to get your account connected, it's most likely one of the following errors:

  1. You set a wrong name by accident in your profile
  2. There is another account with the same Minecraft name

Check whether you set your Minecraft in-game name (not your Mojang / Microsoft name shown in the launcher). You can check it by executing /say test in Minecraft.

For the second issue, use /connectaccounts <e-mail address> in Minecraft instead to link your Minecraft account with your actual BuildPaste account.

How can I paste builds?

You can paste a build by clicking 'Copy' and then typing /paste inside the Minecraft chat. But this only works if you are logged in.

If you're not logged in then the paste command will be copied to your clipboard so that you can paste it into the minecraft chat by pressing CTRL+V.

Additional information:

  • You can type /paste dontplaceair to paste a build without placing the air blocks. This is useful if you want to place your builds in water or in any terrain.
  • You can type /undopaste to undo your last paste

How can I upload my own creations?

You can upload a build by selecting 2 opposite positions from your build with the 'Position Selector' item or by typing /pos1 or /pos2. After that look at the front of your build and type /upload <build name>
To share the build with the community, you can publish your build after that.

Additional information:

  • You can find your published and uploaded builds on your Profile
  • Your build will be listed on top of the Newest Builds after publishing

Plugin Exclusives

Share your build

When using the plugin you can type /sharebuild to share your current build with the server. All online players will then receive a message with two buttons, Copy and Paste.

  • 'Copy' will copy the build if the player has an account so that they can then use /paste
  • 'Paste' will paste the build instantly and doesn't require an account

Manage Permissions

By default, only operators are allowed to paste a build, but this can be changed by typing /buildpaste allowall If you don't want the non-operators to be able to paste builds anymore then you can type /buildpaste disallowall

Additionally, you can give players individual permissions using a tool like LuckPerms. The available permissions are:

  • buildpaste.paste
  • buildpaste.upload
  • buildpaste.construct

See the update on Spigot for reference: Permission Update

Command Details

Note: All arguments surrounded by < and > are optional


/buildpaste <allowall|disallowall>

  • When given no argument then the command will show a short introdution to buildpaste.
  • (Plugin Exclusive) The arguments allowall/disallowall will toggle the ability for players without operator rights to paste builds


/paste <argument1> <argument2>

Pastes a build. Argument 1 and 2 can either be the ID of the build or dontplaceair. But you usually don't need both arguments.


/construct <buildId>

Pastes a build with the items in your inventory. Can be used without cheats enabled.

  • When typing /construct a list of the required materials for the build will be shown
  • You can then click on 'Construct' or 'Construct Anyways' to paste the build
  • The items that were used will get removed from your inventory (for example, if the build contains 32 torches, then 32 torches will get removed from you inventory)
  • If you don't like how the build is placed then you can also type /undopaste, but you won't get the items back in your inventory.



Undos the last paste that was made.


/upload <name>

Uploads a build to the database. The build can then be pasted or published.



Gives the player the Position Selector item. The item can be used to set the positions that are required to upload a build.
Left clicking sets pos1, right clicking sets pos2



Sets the first position of the two that are needed for uploading a build.



Sets the second position of the two that are needed for uploading a build.



Removes both positions, pos1 and pos2.


/connectaccounts <email>

Connects the buildpaste and the minecraft account. The command is useless in most cases because the accounts connect automatically when pasting a build. But in rare cases, for example if someone else set their minecraft name as your name, then this command is useful. The command takes an email address as an optional argument.



Disconnects your buildpaste from your minecraft account.


/sharebuild <build-ID>

(Plugin Exclusive) Shares the currently selected build by the player, if they are logged in, or the build defined in build-ID

Technical Details:


Buildpaste can be downloaded as a Forge Mod, Fabric Mod or as a Spigot/Bukkit Plugin

Both mods for Faric and Forge can ONLY be used in singleplayer, while the plugin is made for multiplayer


Big thanks to Craftatar for providing player avatars until 2023/06/03. We pivoted to Minotar afterwards because Craftatar went down for a period of time.
