3d printing chainmaille is a bit wonky. go cheack out

http://www.thingiverse.com/search?q=chain+mail&sa=Search

many have tried their kicks at it. but only the high end 3d printers can do a semi-good looking play at it.

my 3d printer, can do some really nice prints but will fail at trying something as simple as 4in1 round rings. it will easily do square or fat faced. basically the sintering systems are all that can currently print decent mail items.

shapeways 3d printed maill is vary soft brakes easy (i got some to play with) the powder they use is not vary durable in that size. (white normal sutf they offer) and if you use the more durable materials they offer the price becomes obsorbent.

when i finish building my DLP 3d printer i will give it ago again to see the difrance. but untill then i like my real maille. Stainless steel for the win!

That is awesome! I'd love to have some of it. Even if it's not actually round, it's an amazing way to make maille.

aye 3d printers are fun. i sugest every one get one!..Razz but the tech is not new. it been around for 30+ years. just only now it is becoming a suitable option for crafters and hobbiest to play with. used to not be able to get one for under 50k now you can get one for around $400.

think i'll try a chainmaille print today i've not done one since i redid my calibration on the new platform.

my printer: not prety but it works like champ

something like these scales is possible. and fun to make. i've made a few dozzen so far. 21mm x 15mm x 8mm hole, 1.12 mm thick

the ones in that pic are failed ones. the printer needed to be oiled when i made them so its alignment was a little off because it slipped mid print.

I've seen those printers. Back when I first heard about printing Minecraft builds I looked into one. The kits look cheap enough, but I'm not good enough to put one together. Can you get multiple colors, or is it all the same color?

@Dinwar: colors are easy to come by, you can even dye the base (natrual) ABS or PLA while you extrude it with some set ups (not mine). colors range from red, blue, green and oragne to more odd colors like neon yellow, violet, glow-in-the-dark, and some multi colors.

PLA plastic is the easiest to find in colors and is easier to work with. ABS, a few less colors but it much tougher material and requires some higher temps and a good clean heated build platform.

the machines are not that tough to build, all you need is some basic tools. and some time. calibration can take awhile to get just right on some of the machine types. there are producers out there that will send you a build and calibrated machine for $1,700. but you could build 3+ kit machines for that.

mine was built for around$450. for a good sturdy gen8-9 printer $700-800 depending on ware you get the parts.

i'm going to be printing a few sets of printer parts in the next week here. so i can have spares and so i can build a second printer. would you like me to doc the build of the second one so you can see how to do it?

Did someone say print minecraft.....HEHE

painted and not painted creepers, enderman hiding in the backgrounds

how about a yoda bust?

No need to document it on my account--I don't have near enough pennies saved up for it yet. Smile But if you happen to want to.... Very Happy

Also, those are awesome!

A few days ago I saw a video of a 3D printer that uses metal... all I could think of was 'print a Chainmaille-Armor dammit' ^^ Would like to see that, although I can't remember what metals were used (I think stainleyy-powder and after that bronze) completly solid rings would be nice.
