DutchMogul's original set had some problems that made it fail when I printed it. I tried to preserve the feel of the original in my edits which were:

  • Lowered the platforms to remove overhang
  • Raised the Rooks helmet to make it taller than the pawn w/o the platform
  • Thickened the neck of the bishop.
  • Thickened the chimney on the king's hat
  • Put the pieces on a plate ready to print

Version 2 also scaldes up all the pieces, the pawn by a little bit less to make them closer to normal chess pieces sizes.

I printed them, and they came out good. Printed with support, and that was a pain in the butt to remove. I broke the heads of all four bishops but was able to melt and reattach. Maybe I'll try again w/o support. Thanks man!

EDIT I just broke out the individual pieces. You can find them here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2458528

Steampunk Chess Individual pieces

this is not flat, the pieces on the left and right are slightly lower than those in the middle.

Is there anyway you could put the individual pieces up? Also did you use support material when you printed these?

Done, see my comment in this chain.

Prints without supports by design.

The process of separating, saving, and uploading each individual piece is just exhausting to me. Blender has the ability to do this for you, as does netfabb I believe, both of which are free.

Nice update to a really nice set.
that was just about a year ago.
and sadly tinkercad is now going away.

Tinkercad is still around boss. I just used it to individualize this model. :-)

yes it was saved. it is a good starter modeling "program"

It is sad but I did all my edits in Blender.

Man, I feel like I made these guys so long ago! This was before my printing days, (didn't know quite what I was getting into). I always wanted to go and revisit these someday. They look great, man! I'm going to have to print a set.
