1

Laser cut the chess board

Focus the laser in the most upper left hand corner of your material. Raster engrave the chess board file onto your material. If using a 1/4 in material, or thiner, you can also vector cut the square board out of a bigger piece of material. If cutting on a 12 × 12 piece of material, or material thicker then 1/4 in, only run the raster engrave.

3D print the chess pieces

upload the .stl file into the software compatible with your machine. You have to run this job with the supports ON for it to print correctly.
