Chess Set by Ty Harness 18/11/18
Improved design and print ability of the men. I've add a plinth which can be printed with the A1 files.
The chess board has pockets for the white squares. (I used this for my ink stamping project) For this job I'm going to make individual tiles of (say) white PLA or possibly just car body filler type material. Don't try to print the full board and men as one piece because of the pockets.
Ultimately I want to make the board into a case to hold the men but also a school pencil case that also has a Raspberry Pi 0 mounted inside. Kids can then play chess at school - It is the greatest game ever invented.
Please note it will take me a while to upload all dependent files. But why not download, scale, slice and print the stl files to see what sort of quality of print you'll get.
A school friend of mine Paul Parish taught me how to play chess or at least got me started.
He died many a year ago now but chess always reminds me of him. So I'll dedicate this project to Paul - RIP.
