Chess Pieces made out of words of what they are!

An autologyph is a thing made out of the word for the thing it is.

First attempt at TinkerCad, I like the software.

This part was made with Tinkercad. Edit the part online at: https://tinkercad.com/things/hBgTRFvOCH5


1) Print
2) Turn sideways
3) Realize each piece spells itself
4) Contemplate the deeper symbolic nature of chess, life, and the universe

You would need supports for this. To be honest, I'd be much easier to pull the stl into an editor and remove the bases and print them on their side. Then, the prints would be vertical, and no supports needed at all. You could just glue them onto the base when they're all done.

Looks pretty cool. Any one have any recomendations as to what kind of support structure settings should be set in skeinforge to print this?

Thanks! Unfortunately I am not familiar with skeinforge, or most 3d printing software. In my classes the printing (if any) was handled by the instructor. However I don't think the support material should be much of a problem, all of the pieces are stacked on the same plane. Let me know if you make any pieces or have any modification suggestions
