3D model description

Dragon Chess! A comprehensive chess set comprising of 6 original dragon sculpts. Figures propotioned to allow for easy piece recognition and play.

This is the Rook! Based on "The Lambton Worm", a very old English legend about a wyrm dragon who when cut into pieces, would re-join itself. Worm dragons are the least intelligent of all dragons, mainly concerned with eating.

Scaled to play on a board with 2.5inch (6.35cm) squares. The pieces will scale down to fit smaller boards. The piece is highly detailed and can scale up to larger sizes should you just want to use it as an ornament.

3D printing settings

Designed to be printed on a resin printer. Has been tested on the Prusa SL1 and the Elegoo Mars. I have printed successully with the base flat on the bed and with no supports.

Due to requests, I am including the following files:

1) The dragon model as a solid. This is suitable for FDM printing and for resin printing, people can make their own decisions regarding hollowing and/or drain hole locations

2) The hollow shape and drain holes as subtractive shapes that I used. These can be used as a point of reference or just some ideas. You would need to subtract these from the solid.

3) The dragon model pre-hollowed with my shape and drain holes. This is suggested only with the model at the current scale and printed with the base flat on the bed and was successful with the Prusa SL1 and the Elegoo Mars. I do not guarantee success with other printer models and scales and you use these at your own risk.

Please do not ask me to hollow models for you etc... I honestly don't have the time and there are plenty of places online where you can ask for help.

Works for FDM printing
