This is a chess set designed to be printed with supports only on from the buildplate (there's a 10mm hole for placing a weight or magnet underneath). At full size, the King is 110mm tall, which is appropriate for very large board/squares (~2.5in/60mm), but scales down easily. The picture above is printed from 50% scaled pieces.

UPDATE 1/14 - Added individual STL files; chess.stl is the entire set, chess.skp is the Sketchup original, and deco_{piecename}.stl are the individual pieces.

Doesn't Matter






Select the support from build plate only option. Any material should be fine, and little infill is required. You may wish to glue some sort of weight or magnet into the round hole on the bottom of each piece.

Your Art Set it ' s very nice. But rook have a problem to print. interupt print self and, it s possible repair this file? thank you very much.

I re-downloaded the STL for the rook and didn't find any errors in the mesh, and a test print of the piece went fine (I attached a picture). I'm sorry that it didn't print for you but the problem is most likely in the slicer config or the printer, not the STL file :(

Attached are two models with different cross-like filials for the king. One matches the rest of the design, while the second is more traditional and would require supports. Both are going to be a bit challenging to print, especially if you size the pieces down for a board smaller than 6x6cm.


Is there any chance you could add a secondary design option for the King? I was thinking the same design with the classic cross on top of the crown.

I didn't put the classic cross on top because it would require supports... even the existing symbol can be a little difficult to print on some machines. If you don't care about supports marring up the surface, I could modify the design.

I don't mind supports. It would be awesome of you to make a second kind design!

These are gorgeous! I love chess and Art Deco is beautiful. I'd print these out as standard/large competiton pieces. Just wondering if you had idea how I could weight these down from within. Maybe hollow out the pieces in blender with a cylinder. Then make a piece that glues onto the bottom of the base after filling with sand or something?

OH I see you already have hallowed them out!

Yes! On the full size pieces (if you don't scale them down), it's a 10mm cylinder. A 5-10mm long m10 grub screw should do the trick nicely.

I just remixed with a bigger hole to use lead shot.

Nice. Can you upload STL for each piece please?
