This part was made with Tinkercad. Edit the part online at: https://tinkercad.com/things/0MwyiZlIbb8

I've added a picture of the first print of the Dalek, this came out much better than I expected, could do with a little tweak, but not bad.

My son now wants an army of these!


Print, try and find someone in the same time to play with.

I found some of the bases of the items were a little messy once converted to gcode, so I ran the full set through netfabb and I've uploaded the "fixed" version which prints much more cleanly. (in the zip file)

Is there a printable chess board that fits this set perfectly?

Not that I know of. Maybe you should design one and post it ;)

I would love to, but I'm a 3d Printing noob and haven't figured out 3D modeling yet ;) I'm working on it, though.

im having issue with the queen it keep messing up

What type of Printer do you have?

I'm going to use the TARDIS as the queen being that it (or rather she) can go anywhere.

Seems fair enough!

Just a question- What exactly is the bishop?

i love this project would love this set ? would u print them and let me buy them by anychance please get bk 2 me thanks paul

Hi Paul, there may be a maker near you that could print them, where are you based?

can someone please message me how to download the print files now that thingiverse changed? I must download this!

So I tried to make this, but after several failed attempts I started printing it piece by piece, learning a little bit of 3D software work along the way.  I ended up making a bit of a mashup.  The K9 I used was thing http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:29700http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... , the Dalek I used was http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:32858http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... , and the Tardis I used was http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:13109http://www.thingiverse.com/thi....  I used your angel, bishop (added a base so I could print it smaller),  and of course your awesome idea.  I made this for a friend who went apesh!t when she saw this, so it's going to be her Xmas gift.

Wow, well done, you should publish your changes as a derivative and let others benefit from all your hard work.

I have to admit, I produced so many chess sets that week that some of them are a little difficult to print.  You'll have found out yourself now, the process of printing each one highlights anomalies in the model that I would have normally fixed before posting. 

The finished set looks great,  I hope your friend likes it. 

This is awesome! How did I miss this when it was posted?  Thanks for sharing!

Thanks. It's hardly surprising, there were hundreds of chess sets published that week using TinkerCAD, it got to the point of being spam, with me as one of the main culprits ;-)

could you put the individual Dr. Who chess pieces up for download? the printer I'm using doesn't have a very large build platform and I don't want to have to scale down the print.

I obviously uploaded the wrong set here. fixed now...

If two angels face each other, are they both eliminated from the board?

Lol! Very insightful question. If they aren't eliminated from the board, they must stuck forever looking at one another.

Very good, I didn't think about that. :)
