Star Trek chess, anyone? Another student design

Today, a student used Sketchup to replicate a Star Trek 3D Chess Board.  We all realized we'd need a little work with scale when we imported the file into RepG.

Anyway, we got scaled down and printed with full support.  And it was a LOT of support material.  The aborted the first print when we realized the supports for the boards were not actually touching the main support and the student headed back to Sketchup to make improvements.

Final print had some minor issues, but nothing a little tacky glue couldn't fix. :)
