I 3D printed a chess set!

Just for fun I 3D printed a whole set of chess pieces!

I tweeted it out and even MakerBot actually re-tweeted it :-)

I simply downloaded all the files from this chess set file:

….and printed each one out individually.

They came out amazingly well, and I’ve already been playing :-)

      My head can’t get around all this 3D printing. I’m still stuck back with the likes of 1980ies Marioland. It’s incredible.

        I prefer them light so they’re very strong but don’t use much plastic. And yes, you can easily make them larger or smaller by just dragging the size!

      Neville,
      I’m a Freshman in high school right now, and I’ve always wanted to become an economist and start my own business in the financial world. I’ve always had an entrepreneurial mindset, and I wanted to know if you had any tips for me on what I should do in high school to prepare myself for this career.
      regards,
      Alex
