Do you think this would fit a bicycle?

I think the pitch will match most bicycle, but it might be too wide if the bicycle has a typical cassette of multiple sprockets. I guess it would fit a fixed-gear bicycle.

It would obviously break if you pedal too hard, but it would be fun to try it out!

Really Cool Design! I Love This Idea And Am Fascinated By Mechanical Single prints however my print bed is 120mmx120mm. I Am Using A Monoprice Select Mini And Was Wondering If You Think It Is Possible To Make A Smaller Cube Of Links? A Smaller Version Of The Model In Photo #4 That Is. If So That Would Be Awesome But If Not No Hard Feelings. Cheers!

Hi Ian

Thanks for the feedback,
I made a version that should fit your printer, see the file "420 chain 120x120" attached. If you want a longer chain, you could splice multiple chains together with chain locks

Good luck! Would love to see a photo of the finished print
Best regards Hartvik

Thank You so much. Sry I did not respond earlier. I moved my setup around and haven't had the time to check. I am looking forward to printing the chains and I am going to do so the second I return home. I will certainly be posting a make. For the work you put in for me its the least I can do!
