Update I'm about ready to just delete this one. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:25084 is the one you want. Do not print this one.
Update I am now building these and selling these on my Etsy! So if you don't have a printer yet, I will be happy to print you one! Check it out at https://www.etsy.com/listing/109657227/
Thanks to those who printed the original Action Chess I learned a lot so I returned the the drawing board. While this assembles similarly to the original, every part has been adjusted somewhat. Improved base-to-base connections for the pawns and rooks, an improved king/queen conenction, and an improved overall design. If all things work out this should be a vast improvement over the original. And cooler looking.
Plus I added a tinkercad logo to the chest for shameless pandering. (Well, I wanted a logo, but I couldn't design one that I liked, so I went with this.)
Special thanks to PrettySmallThings for helping me with the couplers and for pointing out that I need to send my files through netfabb.
This part was made with Tinkercad. Edit the part online at: https://tinkercad.com/things/8kCHfmDya9y
EDIT Made a version scaled by 80% so the pieces fit in the sizes specified by the contest rules. You can edit that version at https://tinkercad.com/things/03FJJx1dw3l
