I am thinking about making my future husband his wedding ring instead of buying one (also maybe making the band for myself).
my ring is titanium and i am thinking of making his Ti as well, which I can do as we have a vacuum melting chamber in our foundry here.
i will be designing the ring on a CAD program, which will be sent to a machine that will make the part out of wax or plastic.
this i will use as the pattern for investment casting (pretty much you coat the plastic in a ceramic slurry, let to dry, melt the plastic out, and pour the metal into the ceramic mold.
so here is where you come in.
i am a metallurgist, not a designer.
does anyone have any simple but cool ideas?
pictures of cool rings online would be great.
since you are all gun ppl i think our tastes in such things will be similar.
also if you happen to be a metallurgist, let me know, ill have a few questions for you as well.
