3D Celtic knot curled round to form a bracelet, which ends up as quite a nice design. This is a knot with loop dimensions 20 x 3 x 3 and generated with seed 2 using the Knot application.
The inside diameter (the bit you have to get your hand through!) is 5.5cm, so not very large. There's some flexibility, but not much. If you want me to generate a larger version just send me a message and I'd be happy to.
Note this appears to be pushing the limit of what the printer can handle in terms of thread thickness, so some loops may not be fully formed (there were just a couple missing in my print).
This bracelet is made of a braid of nine separate strands woven around each other. Printed in nylon (the 'strong and flexible' materials), the separate but interlocked strands make the bracelet flexible and a bit stretchy and bouncy.
Please select a size when ordering. The lengths listed are the inside circumference of the bracelet in its relaxed state. The bracelets do stretch a bit, which makes it easier to get your hand through them. If you would like a size other than the ones listed, just choose 'other/custom' and tell me what size you would like in the 'special instructions' window. You do have to create an account with Shapeways to place an order, but it only takes a few seconds!
Note: I have only printed this design in the 'strong and flexible' plastic materials. It also meets the design rules for the detail plastics materials, but I don't know how flexible or how delicate the bracelets would be if printed in them.
