|Jewelry design - holes for jump rings [message #46614] Sat, 07 April 2012 01:06 UTC
I'm looking to get some pendant earrings printed and I'm trying to decide on the best way to join them to a pair of hoop earrings. I would like to simply print a hole (about 1.2mm diameter) through the solid length of the material. I would then pass a jump ring through the hole to connect it to the hoop. Would there be a problem printing this in metal? Would polishing be problematic with such a small hole?|
Ideally, I would like to use polished stainless steel for these earrings, as the model doesn't lend itself to hollowness and silver would be cost-prohibitive.
ETA: I've ended up with a new model that seems pretty sound to my eye. I went ahead and placed my order for the earrings in both stainless steel and alumide. This topic is a bit pointless now - sorry about that!
