This is an Idea, that has been in my head for quite a while. Its a clockworkpunkish (Does Clockworkpunk even exist?)/steampunkish Ring Design. The Current Version is big, really big, since its supposed to fit on my Ring Finger (which is in the "Wiener Vereinigungsmaß" about 76, which is actually of the scale I found on Wikipedia).

Nice design, what's the intended material? It doesn't look like you plan to have it actually move? With that large top , don't forget about your knuckle. If the ring is metal you don't want your knuckle banging into it.

@Youknowwho4eva:
Thank you :3. I think I'll print my prototype in Stainless Steel. I'd love to make those parts moveable (they should be moveable, looking at the gears alone), but I don't think its doable with the restrictions of steel printing. It should be doable on the other hand with frosted ultra detail or frosted detail for example. About the knuckle: Maybe if I make the ring itself a little bit broader, it shouldn't be a problem.

@arklan:
Thanks :3.
