Rotational Binary Ring
by avrgeek, published
A ring that can be inscribed with a message in binary around the outer band. Very useful for "special" occasions.
This design was used to print the engagement ring for my then-girlfriend, but now-fiance. I can attest to the effectiveness of this design :) Several revisions were printed in several plastics from Shapeways. Frosted detail probably was the most impressive plastic version due to a slight transparency. White strong and flexible worked, but did not reproduce the engravings well. The silver print from Shapeways came out very well.
