This set was originally going to be a remix of the very cool spiral set by BigBadBison. I couldn't get them to print neatly on my printer at the scale i wanted and my intent was simply to beef up the spirals. I kept making other small changes to my liking and it dawned on me that i could just make my own set, so i started from scratch. All pieces where built from the ground up in Sketchup (the only 3D modeling program i know how to use) except for the knight, i borrowed the beautiful horse from TimEdwards openscad chess.
Some slicers have problems with my stl files. Ive fixed them all and run them through netfabb, they should work with all slicers now.
May 16 - Uploaded a new king. Made a few changes to the original.
July 2, 2017 - Uploaded a zip file with the original Skecthup files for anyone who may want the originals. The models have holes in them which would have been time consuming to fix so i let netfabb repair the exported STLs.
Printed with Matterhackers PLA at 200°
The kings cross prints out separately and fits into the recess in the crown. Depending on your printer tolerances, this may be a nice tight friction fit or it may be loose and need to be glued in.
