Chess Set I
by cbiffle, published
Traditional (Staunton-style) chess set. The knight is a draft piece that I hope to revisit -- getting a recognizable horse-bust without exceeding the maximum overhang angles is hard.
Please note: my printer isn\'t here yet, so while I have sliced these models and inspected the tool paths that result, I haven\'t verified that they print properly on actual hardware. I would love feedback from any chess fans with printers! :-)
All pieces so far print ready-to-use except the King, who traditionally has a cross on his crown. The cross prints beside him, and should be glued in place (divot provided).
Note that the pieces are mathematically lathed, and the perimeter loops have a large number of vertices. This is a recipe for trouble if your printer slows down on high-detail areas. For a MakerBot, I've had good results by printing from SD card, and very bad results over serial.
