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 ;)

Snap it.

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

caster66 What do you mean?  Sorry, I'm new to this whole thing, but it's been super-fun!  Right now these rings snap together fairly easily.  Are you recommending printing a few sheets of solid, locked rings then connecting them with the snapping, single rings?

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.
