Designed a shorter set of earrings where the elements are nested. As before, these are interlocked, so there are two separate pieces with a 1mm minimum separation between them for 3D printing.
I used the Extract Entity / Extract face from body (F) tool to create 1mm objects to check for intersections. It doesn't work with the Sphere object (something to address?).
If I were to experiment with DMLS, I could pretty much eliminate the clearances between objects, but I haven't seen them produce in metals suited for jewelry.
