    Hey shapeways community!

    Is it possible to print multiple objects with the stainless steel process?
    I want to fab a custom charm for my girlfriend.
    For connecting to a bracelet it would be better to have something like a small chain consisting of 2 elements. like that: http://www.forteach.net/img_articles/6775/2step01.jpg
    Is it possible to print that?

    thanks!

    No worries, it is currently a know issue, surplus has been deleted :)

    To answer your question: moving or interlinking parts is no longer possible with stainless steel.
    It was too labor intensive and difficult to accomplish for production.

    Perhaps a standard/sturdy split ring could do the trick?

    Cheers,
