    I wonder what the minimum wall thickness is for stainless steel for a ring. Is that 3 mm or can it be less ?

    Hope someone have experience with this and help can help me out

    Thanks Novastar

    What Michael said :) However, be prepared to beef out the thickness according to Shapeways instructions - some designs can be kept thinner whilst others may need to be thicker.

    Yes, I think it's often a good idea to play it on the safe side if you can, and hopefully avoid rejections.
