3D Printed Vertical Chessboard [Cat Proof]


SSilver shared on Thingiverse:

Vertical Chessboard, aka The Cat Proof Chessboard

Like most cats, my kitties look like adorable piles of fluff content on living a quiet life of napping and purring. In reality, however, they are little balls of evil and hate intent on destruction. Their favorite pastime is to look me in the eye while knocking down something that will produce a nice shatter or anything of value, but unattended chess pieces will do in a pinch. That’s why I made the Vertical Chessboard. It can easily be mounted on a wall, up and out of reach of their evil little paws.


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!
