replicaprops@t_louis922 This ring is solid. If you want the other version that opens, check my shop. I have one model available that opens.
replicaprops @bebekka1It is universal I think. I don't think that chart specifies men or women. It is based on the diameter of the finger only.
replicaprops @bebekka1Unfortunatly, Anything under size 8.5 wont print.
replicaprops@bnbhayden Yes. The only part that is 3d printed is the wax model which is used for the mold. After they steam the way model from the mold, real molten metal is poured in. It is called investment casting, or lost wax casting.
replicaprops@ironeric3 You have to order them separate. Shapeways does not allow multiple items for metal in the same part number.
replicaprops@CrimsonStorm Yes, shapeways accepts paypal. Shapeways 3d prints in wax. The wax is then submerged in a plaster like slurry. After the plaster dries, the wax is melted, leaving a mold of the ring. Then they melt brass or what ever metal you have ordered, and inject it in the mold. This process is called lost wax casting, or investment casting, and is centuries old.
replicaprops@Zee420 The way i designed the opening version was to use common off the shelf hinges and magnets so the lid operates flawlessly and locks closed. Unfortunately the smallest I can go due to the limitations on hardware available is the size I currently offer. So unless someone makes smaller hinges, I can not go any smaller.
replicaprops@Zee420 There are 3 different versions. This one is V2 and does not open. The opening version is only available in 1 size and needs assembly.
