Based on my mirror ink stamps - I just wanted to be able to make a chess board set
that could be inked up and stamped. You do not have to mirror the file if you want to make a little sign board or plaque etc. Use the scad file to set the chess board up and position the men.
You'll need to create 2 sub directories: LETTERS and SYMBOLS and move the appropriate dxf files into them.
Have a play and please improve/remix the code. Of course one idea leads to the next. No reason not to be able to make a travel chess set. It would look good printed in black with plaster of paris or white silicon filling up the white squares. No reason it couldn't be turned into and raspberry pi case and then you could make a computer chess game.
Unless you've got a very good printer setup it may be difficult to get a good sharp print for the letters and symbols. Note they're dxf files made up using libreCAD. Why not design your own men. Use polylines rather than arcs for openscad.
Please note I'm just doing this for fun and you may find a few mistakes.
