A spiral themed chess set that can be printed without supports. I modeled and rendered this using SolidWorks. Any criticism is welcome and appreciated.
This has been a project I have been working on since I first got my printer. I wanted to develop something that could not be manufactured by any other process other than 3D Printing. I also wanted to make sure that the design was possible to print without the help of supports, as I have found that do not have the patience to deal with them. The most challenging piece to design was definitely the Knight, but I am quite happy with how they all turned out!
The pieces are quite large, so I suggest printing at ~75% scale for most boards. I printed my pieces on a Makerfarm 8" Prusa i3v in PLA @ 0.2mm layer height. Each piece took a while but it was definitely worth the effort. Enjoy!
