TeamTeamUSA said : "Always wanted a Bauhaus chess set but couldn't afford one? Here ya go!"

Inspired by Josef Hartwig's Model I chess set created in 1922 at Bauhaus Weimar.
This set is at the ~original size, and need an big board to be played ! ^^

It was done as an Blender learning exercise based on MOMA picture and the globals dimensions they gave and we gess the others with proportions and eye.
Exercise supervised by LeoM [ http://www.thingiverse.com/LeoM ] for Le_Garage.


I don't have yet the good sized .blend file neither separate piece stl, I'll upload them monday.

Print all the pieces in white, and when it's done start again whith black plastic. (or you can try pink or green if you whant)
And next find an board and an friend to play with.

Note : Need to print knith on the back for doesn't need support material. => different finish aspect than the others pieces.

What are the Dimensions? cIm making a chess box and i like the design of the pieces.

The dimensions should be in the STL file. You can measure in any random CAD software you'd like.

Simply marvelous!

Beautiful work!

I'm thinking of printing this for my dad . :-D

i love this!! i

tried a print yesterday but i fell asleep, and had forgotten to put plug my laptop in to power outlet, so it made a beautiful print of 90% of the first row, lol

how annoying is that! :(

Don't worry, It will let you more time for work on another great project.

I'm sure of that ! ;)

Hah, you beat me to it! ;)

This was also on my list to model.

Nice job!

very elegant. I have several pages of designs that I never find time to finish, let alone do models of

I really like this design. I was working on a hand carved wood version similar to this a number of years back. may have to break out the old pieces and convert them to OpenScad.
