This is my first design that I have uploaded. I wanted to create a unique set of chess pieces and board to go with them.

I printed my set at higher resolution but feel free to use whatever setting you like.

You will need to print a full set of pieces in each color as well as the following pieces for the board.

32 puzzle board center of each color
16 puzzle board edge slot
12 puzzle board edge tab
4 puzzle board corner tab

Feel free to print all the edge pieces in one color or two as you like.

How much should i reduce the size (%) so that it come out with the same size as standard chessboard?

wow I like it :)

how many hours take to print it ?

Would it be possible to get the source files for this? I would like to make a remix where I add a place for magnets inn all the pieces....cause magnetic chess is best!

So I will be post my results but I sized it up to 150% scale and calculated it is going to take around 9 days just for the inside board cant wait though.

I like the board design :)

very nice, i have just about printed all the pieces now, they have come out fantastic. just got all the board to print.

hey, just a suggestion. Can you post the chess pieces with voids to insert coins into the pieces? I think weighted pieces would be a nice touch. Thanks!

Amazing design, one of the best I have seen to date.

Very cool! well done great idea!

Spectacular! What material and colors have you used?

Very clever, I love it!

how big is this once all printed?

The real size is big so i scale to 3 cm x 4 cm each piece

the squares are approximately 2 inch squares at 100% scale so the whole board will be approximately 17x17 with the border.

I love the puzzle board idea and look forward to printing the board for the chess pieces I've made.

i was thinking about such a thing! but couldn't have done it better! great work!

I like it, its a clever idea.
