Step 4
Leave the size at "1" and click "Export"

Step 5
Click the arrow next to the file that you just downloaded and click "Show in Finder"

Step 6
Move your schematic file into your folder in the dropbox

Step 7
Now for the fun part. Open Minecraft and select "Create New World"

Step 8
Name your world, set to creative mode, and click "More World Options"

Step 9
Set world type to "Superflat" and generate structures to "OFF"

Step 10
You should now have a nice empty world like this one. Save and Quit the game.

Step 16
Place the design in the world and click "Import"

Step 17
Save the world using the dropdown menu, then quit MCEdit.
