Description

A Neato wireframe chess set :)

I'm currently talking with a whole ton of people about printing it elsewhere... I'll post any new information on this and on the shapeways.

I can say between these 100 model of chess set I chose this one.and want to say thanks for sharing it here. I rate it Brilliant.
BTW I will be more happy if you can attach the individual file for each model please

Hey guys, I'm really sorry everyone is having trouble printing my set. I looked back on this set a couple months ago and closed it on shapeways and other 3d printing sites (I had noticed a lot of serious bugs in design), but it seems I forgot to close it here. When I made this set I was very new to the concept and had no idea of the restrictions of various (and most) printers. I apologize to anyone that lost time or money as a result of poor technique and typology of this set. I thank you guys on your feedback, and am really sorry. I plan to make a much better designed chess set in the future (maybe metroid, maybe a better wireframe set). It will allow for derivations, and I will be quicker to respond to people's feedback.

These parts look good but you clearly show your inability to design printable parts with no support. 45deg angles and 1mm thickness it isn't difficult to ask for. redesign your parts so we can print them. lots of your printing problems will disappear when you print them all off individually. when you resubmit the stl. make 1 stl for each. what happens when I brake 1 of the pawns and I want only 1 more. well that sucks now I have to print off the whole set. USE DA BRAINS PEOPLE!

i am having quite a difficult time getting this to render into my computer to actually print, i wonder if anyone else is having a similarly difficult time?

The only one that doesn't work with a standard FFF printer is the knight. I'm trying out a modification I made that might make it possible. But printing this is a serious test of your printers capabilities. So many chances to fail.

any luck with the knight? I like this design but yeah the head of the knight is an obvious problem.
