Locking rings would be cool to see. How hard do you think that would be to make?

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-coatinghttps://www.inventables.com/te...

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 ;)

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.

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