    Hi

    I tried to get some rings printed, but I received an email saying the wall thickness was an issue and they could not be printed in the gold plated stainless steel or polished alumide

    I am still new to modeling and Blender/Netfabb, but with one of these two programs is there an easy way to increase my wall thickness without having to remodel the entire ring?

    Thank you!

    Yes there is a way.
    Get yourself a copy of http://www.marcam.de/cms/viscam-mesh.84.en.html 30 days usable test version
    Open your model, click on 'Manipulate surfaces' pick the surface you want. Either right click or goto ' Facets' 'Offset model'. Have a play with the settings. It should work on individual surfaces.

    Thank you for the reply

    While I was waiting I decided to try redo it, I am almost finished I think, Hopefully it will work out!

    I will keep that in mind for the next time this issue arises :)
