Ah, I see what you're saying.  Good call!

Yeah, sounds nice, but a lot of work ^^
Yet again, still a lot less work than bending steel wire  into links and making a genuine chain mail ;)

Print it.

Snap it.

*Update with thinner links and smaller holes. Makes your constructions lie flatter and they don't come unconnected as easily.

Time to buy some metal gray filament :)
I was also thinking a nice layer of stainless steel coating!  https://www.inventables.com/technologies/stainless-steel-coating

Speaking from experience as a chainmailler, you can make the mail smoother by using solid rings for a majority of the rings. I know when I make my pieces that I go through and close half the rings first to speed things up so in a case like this might as well make them closed from the start.
