Designed from scratch as a holiday gift to my father. My brother, Joe, aided in the design of several pieces.

I designed these pieces to accommodate .72" diamater ceramic magnets.

Many of the pieces are also drawn to incorporate 8-32 and 1/4-20 acorn nuts for a bit of extra industrial snazz. (See exploded diagram photo for reference.)

The board pictured here is just eight-inch x 1.5" laser cut acrylic squares epoxied onto a 12"x12" steel plate (purchased at the Home Depot!).

A bit of extra info:
The knight was inspired by a sea-horse, and the bishop was designed to look more like an actual mitre hat than the traditional piece.

Yup, doing it.
This is going to be a nice present to may grandfather. Will use white and red for my white and read board.
Apart from knight, everything prints without support?
And now to find some nice backgammon pieces, maybe those nice starwars mill pieces :).
Posting pics when it's done. Check out the other chess set i've printed. That one's from grabcad though.
