I present the Ring VI; designed to hold six 2x6mm tritium vials (not included) in two cavities across the ring's face.
This model has been designed for printing in either silver, brass or bronze, but as the title suggests; Silver was the material i had in mind when designing it.

The ring is made up of two pieces, which are joined in the printed model and will require separating before assembly. As well as the six tritium vials, an M2 tap and three M2x8mm socket head screws are required (not included).

The sizing of this ring model is 23mm internal diameter, a UK Z+3 (US 14).
However it can be scaled up indefinitely and scaled down to have a 19mm internal diameter, a UK R1/2 (US 9).
If you would like a specific size then please send me a message or post the request below.

The tritium vials should be set using a UV activated optically clear adhesive such as Norland 61 or Loctite glass bond. These adhesives will cure in direct sunlight in an hour or so.

There are some more photos of this object and other examples of my work, both 3D printed and otherwise, on my 'Tofty' facebook page.
