It's because the search is so resources-intensive, and the server so ill-behaved.
It's a memory limit, but -- annoyingly -- no error message pops up. That's a problem with PHP.

You can make CGI's in Photoshop CS?! I have that program, but I didn't think you could do stuff like THAT with it.
Really basic stuff, yes.

I forgot to mention, you need to make a line (two vertices) somewhere as a distance reference for Blender to tell how far apart the coil should be. See the [url=http://www.blender3d.com/cms/Documenta ...

i find blender easier to use, how does one make a twisted open ring, or a coil, or a pinch cut ring?
Twisted open or coil, use 'screw' instead of 'spin'. Pinch cut, mangle the vertices on the ends - ...

Would I need to tumble rings I purchased as well as rings I made?
Yes. Tumble the finished product to remove the marks *you* make with your pliers, and burrs that are from the cutting process, and t ...

Yes, but.

TRL tried something like that a while back and had really poor results.

Everywhere the rings touched, the paint blobbed together, then pulled apart when handled.

If you don't mind i ...

If you're going to be making jewelry from precious metals, you really should invest in a decent tumbler (and if you're buying precious metals already, you can afford one). A basic 3-lb starter tumble ...

I think people should start with 5356 aluminum welding wire, as it's a little softer than galvy, and easier to work. It's a wee bit more expensive, but not by very much.

My preference for making rings in Blender is to:

If there is a cube, delete it ('x' key)
Numpad-3 (side view)
Spacebar, then Add->Mesh->Circle
Set segments to 16, hit OK
Scale ('s' key) to .714 ...

Maybe add to Blaise's one-man-army list, but perhaps we need one of those graphical word things you have to punch in.
There's a MOD for this on phpbb.com, just needs someone with ftp access to instal ...
