This is a piece of chain mail printed in one piece, already linked. Each ring is loose, able to turn freely. The sheet is about 5 inches by 6 inches. I can also make single, open rings that I can use to link sheets like this together to make costume chain mail armor.



Here we have a set of cosplay horns. I'll mount them to a headband, and paint them. The rough looking bits on the right side are the supports, they were removed when I took the horns off the print bed.

Oh gosh. That's so cool and so much less of a pain in the butt then doing all that Chainmaille by hand. I make Chainmaille Jewelry & I can't imagine having to make sheets of the stuff by hand!

Did you design the chainmaille yourself or did you find the file online?

Found it online at one of my new favorite sites, Thingiverse. I'm nowhere near being up to designing something like that. I still haven't worked out how to make a simple soap stamp.

I've been trying to teach myself Fusion360 by designing soap dishes (of course). It's frustrating but fun, and I've learned quite a bit.
