Chessbot Hero (Formerly Action Chess V3)
by cymon, published
Update 2: I've been making a lot of little changes that I realize I never uploaded here. So now I have. V3.1 for your consuming pleasure. All pieces are now the latest version. If you want the old version, I don't know why, you can still get the plate.
Featuring improved couplers for easier assembly and disassembly, better proportions and appearance, and a more printable design.
Carry your chess set to your next game in the coolest way possible.

Have any suggested print settings for others? I am about to print this one in a few and actually read through the Thing info and instructions...layer height, shells/perimeters, infill, speeds etc???
I think I am going to scale it up some as well, say 20% or so. Stoked!!!
No worries mate! I will save this one for myself and slap it on my shelf of cool printed items or perhaps I will let him stand guard over my Big Red Ben print (Franklin) haha.
An amazing work of art! Thanks so much for sharing these revisions. I will be posting a "made one" soon enough (I am a lil slow at posting up pics) I've been rebelling against Photobuckets high prices for hosting pics and I am down a computer at the moment.

* Forming the head and body by sliding the queen's tab into the middle of the king and sliding down.
* Form shoulders by sliding in the two flat bottomed pawns into the body.
* Form feet and legs by mating two of the pawns base-to-base and attaching the knights to one end. Then join the legs to the body at the hips.
* Form the arms by mating one pawn base-to-base with the rook, and the bishop to the pawn. (Detail lovers will make sure the fingers are in the right place.) Then snap the rook into the shoulder pawn.
