This part was made with Tinkercad. Edit the part online at: https://tinkercad.com/things/99ggSiYgxlZ

The assembled example has some colouring issues but it's just for the sake of the picture. It was originally covered in scales but they kept disappearing. I'm not having much luck with tinkercad working the way it is supposed to.
If i can get tinkercad to cooperate I will load a full set version for download...


This chess set turns into a dragon ready to feast upon your opponent's king
The king ball pops into the socket of the queen one pawn does the same in the two smaller sockets. The bishops interlock and form the pelvic girdle. The ball of the queen goes into the socket formed by the meeting of these. make 3 sets of pawns one popped into the other, the ball of the top one goes into the socket on either side of the pelvis formed by the bishops and the remaining 2 become the tail by going over the ball of the pelvis. The 2 knights pop into the sockets in the queen to form the wings. Your Chess dragon is now ready to do battle with your opponents chessbot

ARTCAD - in reply to bull

Sorry for late answer, but there are some problems. i've printed the 7mb whole plate and found that bottom part of all the pawns are flat and solid. They are not connectible .

bull - in reply to ARTCAD

well crap. Thanks for the info, i'll see what i can do, maybe pull it out of tinkercad to fix it. Sorry about the wasted print

yeah i don't know what the problem is, when i open it in tinkercad it is correct but if i download it and open it in autodesk it is not. I'm thinking tinkercad glitch

the 7mb version is a whole set in one file
