I finally got around to ordering my banded ring in silver. It arrived earlier this week and even unpolished, it looked so cool! Dunno why I didn't order silver earlier.

Looks good! I love printing in silver. I like that you made this in Blender. I'm still a Blender newbie, but I think it's a really powerful tool. It's just so hard to use!

Really nice! I love the colour.
I have been thinking of doing something similar for a while but never got round to do it Sad
great job!

Thank you ItsVictorB! And I agree, Blender has a really steep learning curve for sure.
I had an advantage of a background in Lighwave, so it was more the learning of the buttons and workflows that I struggled with the most.

It's worth it though, such a powerful, if somewhat clunky application.

Thanks Sapro! If you do make something, make sure to show me! Smile
