@JeremyNielsen’s “Connect-4” post in the “Design Challenge 1” thread ( Design Challenge #1 ) made me think about what other board games I could easily design and cut. So I made a quick chess set last night.
It’s my take on the Typographical Chess Pieces design, where the name of each piece is embedded in its design. I’ll have to make a French one as well for my kids, although “Cavalier” is a pretty long word to design around.
Here is the cut file. All the pieces and the board fit on a 20x12 sheet. Although you may want to cut the pieces in 2 different sheets if you want different colors (or you could stain the pieces once cut).
Once again, I’m asking that you only use this design in a non-commercial way.
- It is meant for 1/4" thick material.
- Score the blue lines (vector at low power so it does not cut through).
- Cut the black lines.
If you have any designs for other games you want to share, feel free to drop them here.
