So after finally getting the parameters right for Shapeways to allow the rings to be printed, I finally got them in... The smaller of the two was warped and not circular. I conformed to all the rules with the 3mm wall thickness and all that stuff. I have seen a couple other rings on here come out egg shaped lately. Don't know what that means. Also looks like someone tried to vise grip it back to a circle without success giving the flat smooth spot on the apex part of the bend. The bigger of the two rings is fine though, but the text didn't come out as good as the last. :-\

Wall thickness: 3mm
Height: 6mm & 7mm
Material: Stainless Steal

Here's the pictures.

Customer doesn't want to sell these on Shapeways, so I will just leave it at that.

On a side note, Shapeways has started getting more strict about the wall thicknesses. I understand their reasoning, but at 3mm wall thickness for stainless steel rings, they tend to get gargantuan...
