|Ring won't print - need some feedback / advice [message #59171] Mon, 24 December 2012 18:39 UTC
I'm working on a personal passion-project at the moment - I call it 'Deathring the Destroyer'.
Unfortunately, after speaking with Shapeways support, it seems it won't print. There are areas of the ring and areas of the dragon head that are too thin (such as the tapering on the horns). Now, I can easily fix the ring walls - just make it a little thicker - but it will be very difficult to fix the dragon's head (and quite honestly, I don't want to - I like the scale it's at now, and I don't see why it can't be printed as is). I need a little advice here. I don't see how my model is apparently too thin for printing, while similar rings like these (from another designer):
Have obviously been successfully printed. If anything, I would say mine is sturdier, not the other way around.
Is anyone able to give me some feedback or assistance? (if you're curious, I've attached the image they sent me - maybe you can make better sense of it than me.
Thanks in advance for any help.
