    High End Chess Set

    There are thousands of different chess sets to choose from out there. Because of 3D printing there are even more. An Indian company called df3d has created a very high end 3D printed chess set, using industrial level 3D printers. Each individual chess piece costs between $210 and $300.

    its neat but I think even SLA tech might be too brittle for some of those fine parts, and it would be more expensive than buying an official LOTR gold plated chess set which I think is one of the best i've seen, and I am not even into LOTR.

    Great set. Noting that we are all gonna die someday and in a battle is a quick way
    However the details of this set are a bit off. The heights of the pieces should be as such-- the king is the tallest, next the queen, then bishop, knight, rook, and pawn in that order. Hence, the knight and rook need to lose some height, perhaps lower the pedestal. Plus the bishop and queen need to be raised.
