Laser Etching Acrylic for 3D Chess - Can I borrow some time on the machine?
Hey Squid Labs, I have a question/favor to ask.
I'm looking to make a Raumschach board. It is a 3D chess variant with 5 decks using 5X5 boards. Well actually, I'm not sure which chess variant I'm going to go with just yet (its down to either Raumschach or Millennium chess). In any case, I bought the necessary raw materials today - threaded rods, cup washers, nuts, end nuts, threaded rod and acrylic. All from my favorite surplus store, Skycraft.
I was wondering if I could possibly send you the raw material and CAD files and have the chess board etched. I would, of course, pay for return shipping. If not, that's fine - I'll probably just use tape and sand paper. But if I can have it done from a CAD file, I can make it a little more custom (I could even include instructables or squid labs logo if you want :P).
PS: For anyone wondering why I am not considering Tri-Dimensional Chess (as seen on Star Trek).... Technically, there's no official rules or setup of the game as created by the television show. Not to mention, moving attack boards and getting pieces into the "Neutral Zone" takes a long time (according to semi official rules on chessvariants.com)
