Printed out a set today and they look really good :)

I had to run the rook through Netfabb though, as it had some bad polygons. I also think there might be a small error on the bishop where the head splits.

I think I found and cleaned up the bad geometry on the rook and uploaded the new version. really just a single edge that didn't belong. Ah, silly. Can't find anything wrong with the bishop, tho.

Ya, I'll take a close up tomorrow.

I had a odd artifact when printing the bishop but didn't get a warning from the slicer, so the problem was probably not the model.

Man, they do look good. Any chance of a closeup on the knight. That's the one that kinda started it all.

I never seem have enough chess sets. Is there a puzzle-maker Openscad script around? I have a sudden desire to make a printed board as well (slow-printed in 2 colors... no dual-extrusion here yet)

Hi, I saw an interesting printable chess board a while back: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:12765http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

But there are some others if you just search for "chess board" ;)

Wow, thanks! That's a lot better than what I would have made!
