The attributes. DIY
This is the place where you can add your imagination. Want custom Risk pieces? Monopoly car? Or custom pepper and salt shaker?
Here you model the attribute, we used Autodesk Inventor, but you can use (free alternatives) 123D
. Now, if you never used such software before, we are not going to learn it to you. Those have steep learning curves, but are perfectly doable with some tutorials
Be sure, when you do model, to use the right dimensions. We use these attributes to give scale to the scanned head later on, so if this isn't perfect, you'll be in for a surprise later on.
Also check the 3D printers limitations. Detailing and wall thickness. If you're planning on printing on Shapeways, this page
can be helpful. Note: we tried a lot of different materials but overal the standard flexible white
comes out best (and cheapest). Let us do it for you!
Just because we are that nice, we uploaded a bunch of files to use with your custom scan. There is a complete chess set, and some glasses. This will cover your basic needs for your chess set without bothering about modeling software.
