3D Chess Board


Recommended Posts

I wish to sincerely apologise for not posting in such a long time, due to health problems that I have been having, which has taken a long time for me to sort them all out and that is what I have been up to since I last posted here. I ask that you please be gentle with me with your comments, I really would apperciate that and please do leave me comments, I would really appreciate that too. I have been learning new ways to do things in Sketchup Make 2017, that I did not know about until I watched many Sketchup Tutorials on YouTube, one of them was about how to make chess pieces and I immediately got hooked. I thought to myself. 'Yes, I could do that and also make my very own chess board.' I did look for images of different chess boards and I decided to make one of my own creation. The only thing I needed was an image of all of the different Chess Pieces.

Chess Pieces Image

I did the chess pieces first, one of each first and then I made the actual chess board

Chess Board 1

I duplicated the chess pieces that needed to be duplicated and placed them on the board itself, for the main surface of the board itself, the black and white checks, I used an image refference. However, after importing the image into Sketchup, I drew all of the squares so that I could repaint over the checkered board, as you can see why, not only that, but I thought that black and white marble textures would also work better.

Chess Board 4

I know and realize that the black pieces are not a perfect black collour, when I tried to use one, all of the details of the chess pieces could not be seen properly, I tried varies shades of black until I found one that help to keep the deatails in view, so please do not point out that the black shade is wrong, for this reason, please. I wanted to keep the details of the chess pieces to be visable, I hope that you all understand that. If you would like to inspect the Chess Board in further in full 3D, please feel free to check out the link here: https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/a025d59c-a3f9-4177-8899-92e31f6cdc88/Chess-Board

Beyond all of this, I hope that you like my model.

Happy seeing you back SheHawk, and in good spirits! Chess was something I dabbled in as a youngster, reminds me of my brother and Dad who were always there to play with when i was was younger.

Thank you so much for your comment Gogo, you really made my day. It is good to be back after so long. I tried to play chess once, but I wasn't very good at it. You did not say, but do you like the whole chess board? It took me some time to do each individual chess piece and to duplicate the ones that needed duplicating and then placing them on the chess board in the correct way. I used a chess set up refference image for that, as I was not too sure of the back line up, I knew that the Rooks/Castles go at each end, it was the placement of the bishops, knights, the king and queen I was not all too sure about. So I am very glad to have that refference image.

Hello Gogo. Did I say something wrong? I hope I have not offended you in anyway. I just genuinely wanted feedback about my model, it helps to have feedback. It looks like you are the only one to have made a comment. Is evreyone all busy or something? Sorry to ask, it just that I have noticed a drop in people commenting on my posts and I sincerely want to know if I have done or said anything wrong that has stopped them from leaving me comments. I sincerely apologise in advance for anything I have done or said. I do most sincerely want to try and do my best to support this site by sharing my models here. I wish I had more to say about Sacred 2 as I really do appreciate that this is what this site is Primarily for. I honestly can't really bring anything new to the game or share any kind of a discusion to do with it, beyond my own ideas for alternative characters and my own personal expereince that I have had with the game, which I have not played in a very long time due to my health issues. I'm looking foward to getting back to playing the game, though I do wish that there was more that can be done in the game. Modding aside that is, if I could mod, I would make some of those islands around the Seraphim Island to be explorable with monsters to fight. There is only 2 things that I can think of right now that I would like to discus about the Sacred 2 game, though I am unsure to mention them or not, just in case the two topics have already been talked about. But those two things that I have mentioned are the only things I have that are at least related to the game. I have nothing else further to add. I wish I could add more or do something that would help, or at least I hope it helps this site. One last thing, I no longer get email notifications from this site when someone reesponds to my posts. I'll understand if I have been taken off the mailing list, since I have been inactive for so long and I am even sorry about that, I truly am. I truly love this site and want to be to the best of my ability to do so, be a contributer to this site, in the best way, as much as possible. I'm sorry if I seem to be failing in that regard.
