A Customizer version of my Ring_band_creation_script http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:12804 with support for about 15 styles of ring band shape, with engraved or raised text in your choice of font on the inside or outside using write.scad
Customizer versions supporting other ring sizing systems are also available.
Open in Customizer & provide the following information:
- Ring Size in USA Canadian format
- The Main Wall Thickness (say 1 to 5 mm)
- The Main Depth (say 1 to 10 mm)
- The Main Feature Value (see below for description)
- The Cross Sectional Shape (Choose from 15 shapes as shown below!)
6a. Do you want to add text?
6b. Do you want engraved or raised text?
6c. Text Inside Where would you like the text?
6d. The wording of the Text Itself
6e. The height of each letter in mm
6f. The Depth of engraved/raised letters
6g. The Spacing between adjacent letters
