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?
