Attend to the challenge day
You will be given some challenges that you will need to apply to your existing design and complete the rest of the chess set.
Some/All sets can be printed and painted for the festival of arts.
This is not a competition and our goal is to learn 3D design and share our designs in a showcase (during the festival of arts)
Need help or want to get ıdeas from others?
If you need help or want to talk about this activity, find us during the activity hours and the meetup times below:

Tools and Resources to GET ready
but remember that you cannot directly use a design of another person. It's ok to get inspired from existing designs and even use of some small parts of the design with modifications.
Chess Set characterıstıcs
Original Staunton chess pieces, left to right:
pawn, rook, knight, bishop, queen, and king
Recommended heights of the pieces:
- King – 9.5 cm
- Queen – 8.5 cm
- Bishop – 7 cm
- Knight – 6 cm
- Rook – 5.5 cm
- Pawn – 5 cm
These dimensions may differ up to 10% from the recommended sizes, but the order must be kept (e.g. King is higher than Queen etc.).
The diameter of the piece's base should measure 40- 50% of its height.
