Basic design - I'm going to make my own travel chess set. They'll take some tweaking to make 3d printing easier. The orange pla I'm using was cheap and oozy.
I've printed them on my K8200 and I'm always surprised how some print well and some don't. Often contrary to what I think. Anyway I'm busy working on rev A now to improve design and print-ability.
I've added a plinth to make the men easier to pick up and just set them off the board nice. I've also gone to town with the Humbrel paints. I wish I'd bought two colours of pla as cleaning and painting the pieces has been very time consuming.
rev A11: Improvement in design the the queen and knight.
rev B1: (yellow pla prints)
the small one was scaled 200% with Slic3er and 300% My old Velleman K8200 was able to handle the fine detail on the small print. It's not bad the queen piece could be simplified.
I'm happy with the scaled 300% print.
