    Following Weekend Contest #3: Digital Fabric , my Hex Maille coaster and mkroeker's suggestion "Roll it up to really fill the printer", I thought, hey, why not roll it up into something smaller.

    Hex Maille bracelet is the result :)


    Hopefully the print will work out ok, the horizontal gaps between the overlapping parts is 0.25mm which may end up getting fused, the vertical gap is 0.5mm which should be fine.

    0.25 looks like no go for metal ?

    The bracelet is only printable in Shapeways plastic materials - no steel, silver or ceramic as the bracelet is made up of 48 interwoven parts.
