Hexagonal Chain Mail

Everybody at the Squidwrench Show-n-Tell loved the chain mail. I printed up a sheet of Ablapo’s hexagonal chain mail before the show (because it takes forever) and it came out very nicely on the M2’s larger platform:

The first layers sprinkle a bazillion little shapes all over the platform:

It makes a nice doily for my desk lamp:

The odd blue coloration must be an optical effect, because it’s not visible on the black PLA.
