any supports involved in this ring design ? thank you .

The Gastropnir, Primal Male Ring & and the Modern Ring require supports. The Primal Female ring can print with no supports but will get best results with supports.

Hi Patmerry, I carefully sanded the model with 120 sand paper to get "grain" direction and in the case of the primal female ring, I used a sand blazer to etch the metal pattern into it. As for colour I use Tempera Powder paints with a sponge brush the get the correct finish.

Hi there, I love your designs. How did you get that metal looking finish? It'd be awesome to be able to get the same finish. Thanks. Matt

Hi Lucas, I'm terribly sorry for the late reply but to answer your question I use black ABS filament from XYZ printing with a layer height of 0.12mm. After print, I give each ring a quick smooth over with 80 grit sandpaper then finish it off with 120 sandpaper. This gives it a more rugged look and feel. For more elegant prints I use a homemade acetone bath to give a print a clean and shiny appearance.

Hi, I'm Lucas. I really liked your rings and the photos are incredible. I would like to know what material you used to print them and the layer height.
