Creeper Griefer! Starting to look at a Minecraft chess set and noticed that most models have a 3D printed look instead of a Minecraft look. So, started playing with using 3D depth as a replacement for color textures and whoa! Looks even better in person, or as my son said "that is sooooooo cool".
The texture on this is done with Sketchup (skp file attached). I tried with 1mm and 2mm random offsets but ended up settling on 1.5mm.
