I was designing a PLA chain for a PLA sprocket drive work in process, then my wife saw it and, thinking it was a bracelet, snapped it on her wrist. So here it is, the "Sprocket Chain Becomes Bracelet" thing. Kind of a re-purposed before purposed thing.
Prints fully assembled and ready to install on your favorite wrist (a first for my designs, e.g. no motor, no cranking, no cyanoacrylate, etc.), simply snip/cut off the chain segments from the non-hook end of the chain to make the bracelet fit the wrist of your choice.
Hey, my wife liked it as a bracelet, maybe your significant other will too. Print 2 or more, snap them together, and it becomes a "Sprocket Chain Becomes Necklace". Who knew?
Designed using Sketchup 8, and printed on a Replicator 2 in PLA using Makerware 184.108.40.206 "Standard" settings.
Make sure your build plate is level, then print it, making sure the first few layers are printed smoothly. If not, stop the print, re-level the build plate, then try again.
When successfully printed, snip off segments of the bracelet from the non-open hook end using a sprue or small diagonal cutter to make it shorter as required
Position the bracelet on your wrist such that the hook opening faces away from your wrist.
