I'm going to have this pendant printed in silver here at shapeways.
Should i print the model with the hoop that mounts to the chain or add that after?
Dont want to add a feature that is going to be problematic or may break off anyway at some point during the removal from the printer or in shipping.
Enclosed is a pic.
Thanks for looking

I don't know the dimensions but i would keep the hoop !

The hoops we use always turns out nicely as you can see in the picture below,
the hoop has a inside diameter of 3mm and is 1,25 mm thick.

I would most definitely keep it in the design. Just stick to the design rules and you should be fine. If you'd like to do a search to see how pendants are typically done, the technical term for it is a bail and the the ring connected to the bail that is also sometimes used is called the jump ring.




I prefer to know nothing about everything rather than everything about nothing.
