4d-Staunton Full Size Chess Set - simplified by julienM Jan 7, 2013

Description

The pieces were simplified using Meshlab and the "Quadric Edge Collapse Decimation" Filter. The King and Pawn were scaled to fit the other pieces. Netfabb fixed some manifold-errors I was getting.

Thanks for all the comments guys... I have had a lot of people steal my work over the years so i am used to it. So i appreciate the integrity of leaving MY 4d logo on the parts that i design. I put them up for people to use... not take credit for them...
The 4d logo is on the bottom and if you fill the pieces with lead and put a felt pad on the bottom like i recommend then no one would ever see it anyway.... just a hint!... but out of respect the the designer.. i ask... respectfully that you leave it there! It's just the right thing to do.
Thanks JulienM

Hi,

those were put there by PerryT, who designed the pieces. They are his signature, so I have no intention of removing them.

Hi there,
How would I go about removing the '4d' text that runs through the pieces.
Cheers.

Instructions

MeshLab (FOSS on Sourceforge) can be very useful for the simplification of complex geometries without losing the details.

Filters > Remeshing, Simplification and Reconstruction > Quadric Edge Collapse Decimation

These Files were simplified to 10% (0.1 Percentage reduction) of the original Vertex count. File size for the Knight went from 165 MB to 3.2 MB.

Errors in the geometry were then fixed in Netfabb Studio Basic.

I've started printing these and they look amazing! Even the knight printed with no support. I've ordered some white filament and will upload pics once complete.

That's great to hear. Just remember though, that I just fixed the files up a bit. PerryT would probably also like your feedback,

Hi, just wondering if you could give me the dimensions of the final pieces? Maybe the king and the pawn? Just after height and base diameter. Thanks!

julienM on Feb 14, 2013 said:

The pawn has a base dia. of ~29 mm and a height of ~49 mm.
The king has a base dia. of ~41 mm and a height of ~100 mm.

Just a hint if you use Slic3r, double-clicking on the name of the geometry gives you the dimensions.
