Powerless Queens

This model was a little more than just a model, it was my means of solving the problem.   On my puzzles page you can see the poser. It involves placing 8 queens on a chees board without any of them being able to capture any other one.   I needed something to work out the problem with so i opened up my autocad program and built this model of the queens and the board.   With solid modeling, you can move the pieces around the board just as though it was a real one insead of a model.
