Modeling Chess pieces in 123D Design #3DPrinting #3DThursday

Vegter van Slooten posted a great tutorial on Youtube for beginners on how to use 123D to model parts like chess pieces.

Hello everyone, welcome to this tutorial. This tutorial is meant to get you started with design for 3d printing. In this first video you will be learning how to make a chess piece in 123D Design. 123D Design is a free software by Autodesk for mac and windows and can be downloaded from their website. 123dapp.com/ It is very much recommended to use a mouse.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
