Engagement Ring by fynflood Oct 6, 2009

Featured Thing!

Description

The ring I printed, and then used to propose to my girlfriend.

I printed it with black ABS, and then printed a small white cube and set it with some magic glue eagleapex left at Hive.

I drew the 2d shape in gimp, then had a friend render it in 3d using sketchup (I fail at 3D). I made some adjustments using Blender for the final print.

She said yes! Now to get our MakerBot to print with white gold.

Say goodbye to your maker days!

Ha, yeah - it could be a carbon-themed ring

Instead of printing in white gold, print it in like carbon graphite or something cool and pop a diamond in it, i think that'd be cooler

Good man! Congratulations on your engagement, make it last a while cos it's great fun! :D

Congrats! I don't think MakerBot's temp can go quite high enough for direct gold printing, but you can print it out in jewelry grade wax and take it to a jeweler to have it cast.
