Hi Clare

The design is so simple, you won't need any special finishing, maybe just a little bit of smoothing to correctly fit the ring

Printing this now, Will post pictures with the ring in it when the ring is finished being made.

Can't wait to see it!^^

Ive got it made and the ring is here just its a tiny bit too big to fit in, dont know if i should sand it or just print another. Or is it this way so it has some compression fitting.

Hi Ghostly

First of all, thank you so much for posting the made photo! ^^

It's a complicated question, unfortunately the hole for the ring can change because of tollerances between 3d printers and is strongly related with the calibration of the bed of each 3D printer, and, obviously, the ring size (what a ring!)

In my opinion in this case is better to have a little bit of compression to fit the ring in the box, you can sand the hole a little bit if you want, but the piece can turnet out a little bit ugly because of the sanding. Finally if you are not happy with the result and you can 3D print another one without paying more money you can always scale the model, or better, change the dimensions in the original file, to fit your necessities.

Anyway PLA is a soft plastic and probably with some time the compression will be less.
