    Hey there Shapers!

    I'm new here but I'm ready to start a store. I would love any tips and advise when it comes to getting placement and good feedback form my models/designs.

    Here is my first model !

    Please take a look at the attached video that shows how the form was made.

    Looking forward to being part of the community

    Hi Spacetime and welcome to Shapeways.

    The video of your model is very interesting.
    I have a question: what prevents your chainmaille to turn flat again once printed? Did you make every link penetrate a little bit its neighbours?

    Hey Magic!

    Thanks for the comment

    You got it, each link intersects at least one other neighboring link. Most of the links intersect three - four of there neighboring links. Most likely going to be ordering a couple for Christmas gifts.

    I'm hoping to upload some other models this weekend as well. How can I click through to your page? I just added you as a buddy but it doesn't seem to show me your store?

    thanks again

    On the forum here, when posting the link to the shop is at the bottom or the user info; e.g.

    Both your store look great! I'm planing on making some more Chainmaile works as well great to see what you've made
