This is a quik derivative of the Plywood chess set by ohammersmith: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:855. What's changed? I've added all pieces to one file for easy cutting, also I've created a board that fits the unique laser cut feel of the chess game.
The material I'm going to use is 3mm Plexiglas or acrylics, in two colors that both give nice contrast and still are partly transparent.
The chess board is only rescaled (search puzzle.svg for the original) and colored nothing else, every piece is unique so its a pretty straight forward 64 pieces and 2 color puzzle. That gives the home made chess set a nice touch. I dislike the straight and boring chess sets, this one fits my collection of weird and wacky chess sets. I've yet to design a 3 person laser-cut chess set.
I have made a set meself, It works prety well. For my materials, I had to schrink the whole set down to 95%. The puzzle chess board work great, beside that assembling took me around 2 hours. The result looks great.
I planned on designing a board outline for the chess board. and a box for the chess set.
just a note to my pictures... The placement of King/Queen is wrong, because: Queen is always on its own color. Too bad I turned the board 90 degrees...
Cutting the whole set:
Do not cut the chessboard puzzle, all lines in the drawing are double. take it apart instead or use the the board_blue and board_white. Cut out chess_all twice in 2 colors.
