    Could anyone please help to calculate weight for a pair of earrings with the information we have available from Shapeways?

    Example
    Material Volume 2.0787cm3
    Machine Space 6.5554cm3
    Surface Area16.513cm2

    Material brass and silver


    Thanks!

    Well the weight of silver is 10.5 gram per cubic cm. You simply need to multiply that with your volume. Those earrings will be pretty heavy.o_O

    Oh dear! Thanks.
    Any suggestion how to make them lighter? I am aiming for 8g per pair maximum...

    of course I can make it smaller but that is not really the idea
