This is hinge mail, like chain mail only made with a series of hinges linked together. This variation of chain mail is much easier to print and
should mess up less easily. At the moment It can only move in the x and z axes (it can not move up and down). I am sorry that is is only this big, my computer kept freezing up. Please let me know if we have you have problems with it.

I will soon add some file to let you edit this thing with various programs to make it your preferred size.

I am sorry about the problem with the connector bars, I will try to find out whats wrong and fix it as soon as possible.


To make this, first scale up. The overhangs will not work at the size it is now. I would recommend about 3-5 times the size. Print with whatever print settings you would like. I would recommend slowing it down a bit.
