Duchamp Chess Set - Self Supporting Overhangs by machina Jul 1, 2014

Description

Edit 2015 Jan


Tyring to find the source we remixed this from - can't find it; it's gone from thingiverse?

We wanted to print the fantastic Duchamp Chess by Scott Kildall and Bryan Cera in very large pieces - some of the overhangs were getting to be a problem at 300-400 percent so we started adding self supporting walls for filament based printers.
If anyone else is interested in the other pieces, we can upload them.
For those who asked, the material is Purple Translucent Natureworks 4043D from Ultimachine. Printed at 0.2mm, 80mm/s, 15%infill, although this piece will most likely come out allright with 0 infill.
Edit:
As promised, here are the rest of the files.

Edit 2:

Added a picture of the Knight at 200Percent, printe on the left in regular Natureworks PLA and on the right in ColorFabb BronzeFill.

Yes I do. I used the Duchamp knight as a model in a project, to cast pewter in an ABS mold.

A few months later, Bryancera contacted me saying someone who owned the Duchamp copyrights threatened legal action, and Bryan advised me to remove my project as well.. If I recall, the copyrights extend for about 20 more years.

While searching "chess" today I was surprised to find a couple of newer examples of the purported 'infringement', and I suggest people at least be aware of the situation.

Not really. A quick search of the interwebs does not reveal anything worthwhile.

Anyone know why Bryancera has removed this???
