Tinkercad Chess Set Design Contest: Winner Announced!

A few weeks ago, 3D design software company Tinkercad hosted a contest where users could submit their designs for 3D printable chess sets. The winner, announced today, was awarded a MakerBot 3D Printer.

The image above shows the winning submission, called Action Chess by cymon. This innovative design not only is a traditional chess set, but also pays homage to Transformers by allowing chess pieces to be combined into a larger creature.

Congratulations to cymon. Hope to see more creative designs like this soon!
