Thanks for a nice set. I did have the issue with the rook as mentioned below, but brianmartin192's alternative file was ok. I haven't noticed the problem with the king that some others have reported.

Both the King and the Rook models have an issue. I was able to fix the Rook Model using MakePrintable. I'm sure I could have done the same thing with the king, but for whatever reason slicer didn't have an issue when scaled to 90%.
I've attached the fixed rook model.

Thanks for the fix. I had the same issue with the rook, but my king appears to be ok. (Sliced with Prusa Control, which is based on Slic3r)

I scaled down about 70% to fit an 8x8 board, worked fine. The Top bit of the King has some issues though, the area under it is empty, and it basically had only a supper tinny bridge piece holding it on, so both of mine came off with just a slight touch after printing. Other than that this is a great set!

Wish I had read this before I printed the King...yeah there is a hollow spot with a barely attached top...I should have paid more attention to the slicer preview.

Same problem here after I printed two rooks. And despite I try to choose even 100 percent infill (I printed at 50) in the Slic3r, the area between the mast and the top part stays empty.
I'm a total newbie of printing and 3D design...but maybe someone can fix it?

Love how nice these seem to print (looking at pictures/makes). Any idea how they may work if scaling down quite a bit? Need miniature pieces to fit a 5"x5" board (around 42% scale from regular size board/pieces). Would love any advice or sharing of images showing how the print comes out when done on a small scale. Thanks!
