Yes she already planned for it as a next project. Only difficulty for me is to figure out the snap fitting for a small battery and a button. That will make a complete package for fun.

I've been working on a pet project as a gift to my nieces. The one niece has been learning to play chess. The other niece is, I've been told, really into elephants at the moment. So...I decided to render some very, very small elephant chess pieces.

These are all rendered in Sketchup -- the official freeware of the untrained, amateur CAD artist.

I've just ordered some test prints today, and I'm anxious about how they will print. I mainly use Shapeways to print custom building toy accessories, so I'm used to the small scale...but there are a lot of little details that are pushing the envelop this time. I'm anticipating there will be quite a bit of "fusing" on some of the finer gaps.

Pawn:
index.php?t=getfile&id=94854&private=0

I mostly recycled the basic pawn parts for the rest of the set.

The Rook is supposed to be a Roller Derby elephant.

index.php?t=getfile&id=94853&private=0

The bishop...obviously.

index.php?t=getfile&id=94855&private=0

The queen:

index.php?t=getfile&id=94856&private=0

(Female African elephants have tusks!)

The knight:
index.php?t=getfile&id=94857&private=0

(What you can't see so well is the rocket strapped to his back, which lets him "jump" over the other elephants.)

I also added square bases that name the piece (and gave me a way to sprue the figurines together without affecting the figures themselves).

These are all very tiny...around 15mm...so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Forum: It arrived!

Thank you, Pier!

Side note, IKEA has a great selection of LED bulbs. A couple years ago I was looking for a nice, small LED and couldn't find any.


Pssst! I wrote a book to help you quickly get your Sketchup models ready for printing. Click here to get it on Amazon

I got my first porcelain prints today. The first of my collection of Chess Piece Shot Glasses, the King and Queen. Got them printed in Gloss White and Matte Black. These pieces fit on chessboards with 2x2inch squares, and hold 1.5oz of your favor beverage.

Are the bottoms unglazed like the old ceramic process?

Is it more important to drink the shots or follow the rules of chess?

Yeah the bottoms are unglazed. In the photos of the black pieces you can see the edges of the white unglazed bottoms.

Haven't gotten to play a match with them yet, I'm sure it will be fun.
