Create your own holiday gifts: Part 2

For the second installment in our three-part DIY 3D Print gifting series, we are rewriting the 12 Days of Christmas song: “…Seven swans a-swimming, six geese a-laying, create your own gold-plated rings!”

Yes, Shapeways has an app for that: The Custom Ring Creator. Regardless of whether you’ve ever designed anything, you can make a unique ring in minutes.

Select from ring design templates or create your own by uploading a black-and-white image. Then adjust the pattern, size, and height. You can even add a personal touch by engraving it with a name, date or phrase like “I love you”
Your ring can be 3D printed in a range of metals including steel, sterling silver, gold plated brass, and bronze. Whatever suits your lucky gift recipient!
Remember to keep in mind the Holiday Shipping guidelines – precious metals have a December 2nd ordering cut off date in order to arrive in time for Christmas. 

If you like it, you should put a 3D printed ring on it!
