Introduction: Fablab Chess
I am in love with chess, so I decided to make a board by myself. It is rather small. One will prefer to play on a bigger board if play at home, but it is cool to take it, if you want to play outside.
You will need 3mm plywood and 8 magnets with 6mm diameter
I made it on 100W Laser machine
Step 1: Step 0: 3D
I made a 3D first, to see how it will look like
Step 2: Step 1: Engrave Ornament
Engrave ornament and color on the figures
I set raster: S50, P30
Step 3: Step 2: Cut Figures
I set: vector: S6, P80
Step 4: Step 3: Engrave the Board
I set: raster: S50, P30
Step 5: Step 4: Cut the Board
I set: vector S6, P80
Step 6: Step 5: Engrave Niches
Overturn the board and engrave niches for the figures on the other side of it. We need to get 1,5 mm depth
I set: raster. S50, P60 twice
Step 7: Step 6: Niches for the Magnets
Engrave niches for the magnets on the same side. We need to get 1 mm depth
I set: raster. S50, P30
Step 8: Here You Are
I made it not from the first try.
Thank you, Fablab77 in Russia for the laser and advices!
Step 9: Corel Draw File
Welcome to use this file as the layout.
You will probably need to change settings for your laser machine.
