Well, I've not been nearly as active as I would have liked. I have a couple of 'simple' projects to help me learn the tools, and as you can no doubt see, I've not done quite as much as I would have liked. Ahh, free time, where are you now?

One project I have started (last night, in fact), is a standard chess set. I've only got a pawn so far, but I'll post the rest here as I go.

A question about walls: It has a less than 2mm wall (I think), and I can apparently print it in stainless steal, which requires a minimum wall of 3mm. Is that because of the shape?

Another one on patents. I assume this design isn't covered anymore, as it was originally patented in 1849, and i don't think patents last that long, but I know they can be renewed and thought I should ask if anyone knew how to check? Given that it is now used everywhere, I am assuming that it has long expired, but better safe than sorry.


Rook (View in 3D)

p3d.in is freaking out in a couple of corners, but shapeways doesn't seem to mind. I think that the issue is to do with the proximity of some of the verticies in the obj file. It doesnt seem to be creating a face that should be there.

Considering they take so little time to spit out, I should really be finished with these by now.

EDIT 2 - Royals
