I have been teaching my 5 year old grandsons to play chess. It started with checkers, but the little buggers are already beating me at that! So I have upped the ante and introduced chess.
Then I thought that a chess set might make a nice present. So I explored THINGIVERSE and found these Egyptian styled pieces. Free download. And I have been printing them. I intend to cast them in bronze and aluminium.
The detail and quality of these Thingiverse STL’s is superb!
I am printing in 0.15mm layers, using PLA.
Quite excited about this project.
So, when they start beating you at Chess. What then???
Perhaps Cast Brass for one set,(Black) aluminium the other, (white). Al might be a bit light so a set in copper/bronze??
Interested to see the outcome either way.
Your chess set looks fabulous! Can’t wait to see the castings!
thanks Richard! I too am quite excited about this one.
