zenix beat me to the punch with http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:10039, but this set was designed to preserve the shape of traditional sets to allow for playing common variations like Banqi (dark/half chess). The icons were chosen to be easy for western players to learn.
The provided board is half a Chinese Chess board fitted to print on 8 1/2x11 paper. Print 2 and tape the together to play the full game or print one to play Banqi. (I play a lot of Banqi.)
If you're on a makerbot download and print p1 and p2 twice each for a full set. If you have a bigger print bed you can print a side at a time with the full set.
When printing is complete use enamel paint and a #1 fine tipped brush in the recesses. Acrylic also work but use a sealer to add shine. (Model paints like Testor brand will actually soak into and permeate your piece.)
kitlaan has made an excellent box to store your set in: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:10397
