3D model description

A minimalist chess set, inspired by the work of Josef Hartwig.

The shape of each piece, despite being very simple, indicates the legal moves it can do. I found this shape-functionality relationship very very satisfying, and made this 3D printable version.

I love it, i hope you'll enjoy yourself playing chess with this set as much as i do.

The pieces are 35mm on each side, which fits very nicely on a 45mm size game board, but you can always scale them down.

3D printing settings

I highly recommend you print the pieces with a high infill setting, so tat they feel heavy when playing. Anything above 80% is great.

Only the knight will need support.
