Hey shapeways community!

Is it possible to print multiple objects with the stainless steel process?
I want to fab a custom charm for my girlfriend.
For connecting to a bracelet it would be better to have something like a small chain consisting of 2 elements. like that: http://www.forteach.net/img_articles/6775/2step01.jpg
Is it possible to print that?

thanks!

No worries, it is currently a know issue, surplus has been deleted Smile

To answer your question: moving or interlinking parts is no longer possible with stainless steel.
It was too labor intensive and difficult to accomplish for production.

Perhaps a standard/sturdy split ring could do the trick?

Cheers,

Stijn
