Wobbly Chess Set
by MikeyB, published
Update 3/18/13: I have added a single Pawn .stl along with .stls for a full set of Rooks, Knights, Bishops, King and queen. One includes the Knight that needs support and the other set is for the two piece Knight that needs to be glues together.

I had the same issue with the King and the Queen. Make sure you put some weight in the base and then give the bottom a quick sanding. I just went over it with Fine then Extra Fine sandpaper and the stand perfectly now.
I printed the King last night, but I couldn't get him to stay upright. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

1.) Print 8 Pawns in white and 8 pawns in black.
2.) Print 2 Rooks, 2 Knights, 2 Bishops, 1 Queen and 1 King in both black and white.
3.) Print 32 Base pieces in grey or in the color opposite of the piece.
4.) Print 32 Board Squares in black and 32 in white.
5.) Print the Board Base in grey or back. Print 4 corners, 8 edge pieces and 4 center pieces.
6.) The Base pieces are designed to be weighted with pennies or lead shot. Add 5 pennies to each base and super-glue in place.
7.) The base pieces and chess pieces should be sanded lightly to create a good fit and glued together.
8.) The Board pieces should be sanded lightly to ensure a snug fit on the base. The base and the squares should be glued into place after being test fit to make sure that all the corners fit well.
9.) Have fun!
