4d-Staunton Full Size Chess Set
by PerryT, published
My interpretation of one anyway!
Including a Board. The STL files are very high res which is why they are large. Worth the download. I experimented with lower res output and was not satisfied. I like "VERY Smooth" surfaces. :)

Thanx for uploading your PRO design! I changed the original chess pieces but the board is sick!
I'm having the same issues with the base squares not printing properly. Can you possibly supply me the same file? Thanks!

This is a real project to print the entire set.
I designed this for my father as a gift (he is a Chess master) and decided to share it when finished because it came out so well.
All Photos are from the first one I printed on a Makerbot Replicator.
30 hours for the pieces and another 35 hours for the board. Half a spool of material for each color.
The base of each Chess piece is hollow so you can weight it if you would like. I hot glued lead shot in each one and put a felt pad on the bottom of each piece.
The Board is constructed in two sections. There is a base (jigsaw puzzle) consisting of 3 separate pieces. Center, Side and Corner. You need to print 4 corners, 8 Sides and 4 centers. They will snap together very tightly, I designed it that way. The board has 2â€ squares.
The â€œSquaresâ€ , you will need to print 32 of each color and either just lay them in place or bond them in place with a solvent or adhesive to make the board permanent.
I have also included a countersunk hole in the center of each piece so you can screw it down to a decorative board or whatever you would like.
Since I printed mine from ABS I just coated the bottom and sides of each piece with pure â€œACETONEâ€ and bonded in place. I also boded the base just to make it more rigid.
But you do not have to do this
Let me know if anyone has any recommendations or complaints or... whatever.. :)
And as always, please post pics of your finished project if you print any of this.
