3D Chain Link Rings
by Neufrank, published
I would love to see someone make this on a 3D printer. However, I am just learning about the technology and don't know if it is even printable.
These units can also be interlocked in various ways in one, two and three dimensions (at least on a computer). A sort of three dimensional chain might be made.

It should be possible to print it on a 3D printer, but it would probably be on one of those that prints laying down a thin layer of powder, 'drawing' with a liquid glue, adding another thin layer of powder, drawing, layering and so on. The item i lifted out of the powderand shaken clean, and the remaining powder is reused on the next print.
Printing on a RepRap or similar wouldn't be possible without either adding lots of support structures, or rebuilding the printer for powder-based printing.
(Powder-based is probably not as accurate as the direct-pastic extrusion used on a RepRap)
A pity, for this looks like a really awesome design
(In other words; could someone please disprove me?)
