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.

My advice would be to check the remixes. http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... addresses this very problem.
Thanks for this awesome design. I'm having trouble with the Pawn to Pawn mating for the legs. It seems there is too much space and so the bond is not strong and the legs wont hold. It means I can't stand the robot up because it all collapses. Has anyone else had this problem? All the other connections work great including the Pawn to Rook arm connection, its just the pawn to pawn base that seems to mess up. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

* 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.
