Summary

I call this a Micro Chess Set because each square of the board is 1" x 1" making the total board size 8" x 8". In order to artificially add weight to the pieces, each chess piece has a small magnet in its base, and each board square has a threaded hole for a set screw. The pieces are based on Staunton chess sets. The board was inspired by other chess boards on Thingiverse. In order to save time and resources a paper board has also been included; if you choose to use the paper board it is unnecessary to 3D print any of the board components or purchase the magnets and setscrews.

A complete set will require the following:

Light Colored Pieces
2 x Piece Bishop
1 x Piece King
2 x Piece Knight
8 x Piece Pawn
1 x Piece Queen

Printing Recommendations:
The pieces, not board, should be printed with 100% fill.
The knight will require a support, this can likely be added by your slicing software.
If printing the paper chess board, it is best to print it without scaling it up or down.
