Interlocking links are easily snapped together to fulfill your wildest medieval dreams.


Print it.

Snap it.

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

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!
