You can send the files to me in a personal message and I'll take a look. Make sure though that you have your invention protected. Don't send me anything proprietary. I don't sign NDAs because I don't like to put limitations on myself.

The model was made on CAD first --> got parametric file --> should be ok for mold.

The parametric file was converted into stl file for 3D printing --> worked,- got Your 3D printed model.

Everything seems to be ok... try /ask another manufacturer..

Sorry I don't think I was clear before.

Or perhaps I am also misunderstanding what you are saying.

In regards to the .35mm I believe that is the width of a character span. Not the over all height of the text.

I am hoping to use 1.25mm high text, which I have seen on other rings. Does that make sense?

If you will make embossed text with 1.25mm of high and .4mm of wight, it will unprintable in any case. But text with 0.8mmWx2mmH will printable.

If you want such text as engraved, it could be printable, I am not sure, because SW need 0,3mm of clearance for cast similar things in all directions, and your font of text can becomes partially unprintable by local too thin elements.

You could try several fonts and order it on SW alternately. In any case, SW will no print something REALLY unprintable.

I wrote about precious cast metals only.

I cannot make customizable ring by CustomMaker like on link https://www.shapeways.com/shops/amalham?section=EasyCustomRi ngs&s=0 with less wight but can do it as you want if you send me needed sizes and text/fonts. Also I can offer you alternative font which will printable in your case.

The link below provides a full report and pictures of one of the fastest aircraft of its class, but never went into production. We are talking about the Heinkel He 119. If it had been produced and participated in WW2 its performance would have changed in some way the course of the war? What do you think? Click on the link below and take your own conclusions.
