Working on printing my set now. So far so good!

Hey, you chess pieces are being sold on eBay :).Hope you are getting royalties.

Haha. At that price, best of luck to him trying to sell it. That would be nice to get a cut. Unfortunately, my license for this object isn't non - commercial. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

I just find it very sleazy for him not to give a link to this model :)

Why? Is he selling the file? Or the final printed product?
If he is selling a final printed product, there is nothing "sleazy" about it. Costs time, material and electricity to produce.

So does making a photo copy of a book. Just because you CAN do it, doesn't mean you have the RIGHT to. We makers release our work with a LICENSE. This means you are allowed to use the files we provide under certain restrictions.

Bottom line, don't be a leach and make money off other people's work.

Apparently, your design is as shoddy as your understanding of legal terms. Not to worry, there is a FREE online resource that will fix your garbage for me, so I can pay thingiverse to print your stuff for me. :-)

That's a cute little rant you've got there. Feel better?

Depends, are you done crying like a little girl?

Maybe you need to go back and read again about who's crying over what. I didn't care they were trying to sell a print of these models even at such a high price. The license states to give credit to the modeler and a link to where someone can find it. that's all they were trying to tell me.

Your response, NOT mine.
The LICENSE states to give credit to the file...he isn't selling the file, he isn't making the file available on EBay, therefore has NOTHING to do with your project file on this site. Didn't say I agree with what he's doin.

Keep cryin', I'm enjoying watching your ignorance of the terms of use on this site and what the license actually covers.

oooooh! Looks like Thingiverse makes money off your "Hard Work" using the "Order It Printed" link.....quick, sue 'em. Oh wait, you can't. NONE of the licenses in here prohibit getting paid to print them!

And I think everyone here is forgetting the fact that your "License" is only good for distribution of the project files themselves. Ooops.

Feel free to pull down all your hard work.

Nice try with comparing this to published copyright infringment. But like YOU said..."Unfortunately, my license for this object isn't non - commercial." So...LET'S take a look at your license, shall we?!

Under the following terms:
Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.
ShareAlike — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.
No additional restrictions — You may not apply legal terms or technological measures that legally restrict others from doing anything the license permits.

Hmmmm....NOTHING in there about selling something I print using YOUR file. Oh hey! Look! There is a little link in EVERYONES that allows someone to "Order It Printed"! Gee, I guess if you ACTUALLY had a legal leg to stand on....maybe you would. But hey, don't get pissy at me because some shmoe is charging people 200 USD for a printed set of your designs.

There should be more makerbot chess sets

Great job! What software(s) and time length did you need for this? Andrew (http://3dhacker.com3dhacker.com)

Blender 2.66a. 3-4 hours (with distractions). Printed with RepRapPro Mendel. 0.5mm nozzle. 0.3 layer height. Each piece was printed separately. Pawn 1 hour, Queen & King 1h 45min, Bishop & Rook 1h 30min, Knight (with supports) 1h 45min (each). I haven't sliced the full plate yet.

Righto. Appreciate the work you have put into this! Andrew (http://3dhacker.com3dhacker.com)

I'm looking at the Knight and I'm thinking that you had to print with supports?

Yes. Along with the King's crown, to get the cross to be supported.

Great Idea !! Congratulations !!

Man, I wish I had thought of that! It's beautiful!

Love it, but I think we really need a more feminine queen...

Yup, all the ideas I've had are officially done now.
