When are we going to start seeing these on a board?I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side, be an advocate for myself and others like me. -Maya Angelou

Hopefully by the 3rd or fourth week of April. I plan on meeting with my photographer and taking pics of all the pieces then. If Shapeways stays consistent with how fast they ship out metals, I should have the knight here Friday and the rook by next Tuesday :) for this photo shoot it will probably be a glass board. I have concepts for a stylized chess board that I would like to offer with this collection. unfortunately the 3d print process just isn't cost effective for the dimensions I need. Too bad you guys don't offer glass any more, that would have been special. I'll be putting a poll together soon to see if people would like to have a board to go with the collection. If it's what the people want, then I'll look for ways to produce it.
Also, may I ask what casting house does Shapeways use?
If I had a model that exceeded any of the maximum dimensions, could I cut that model so it would print in smaller parts and then have the casting house reassemble them to make the larger cast?
