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.






It always was. It always was because somethingness cannot spawn from nothingness. And in the was of the past there is the forever of the now. Only now. Only now and nothing new, for anything new would add to the infinite, yet there can only be one infinite. Only one. The universe is only becoming something new in the delusion of our minds. This delusion that makes life worth living in our perceived universe becoming.
