Description:
I need someone to make a certain part of my 3D anchor stl file a little thicker. Nothing complicated at all! The guy that was working on this file is really swamped with work and cannot complete this edit. This job should literally take less than 30 minutes if you know what you are doing.

On the attached picture it shows that I need to make specific parts of the anchor a little thicker to meet the minimum supported wire thickness of .8mm.

Here's what the email I recieved from shapeways said: "Here is why we cannot print your model: The minimum thickness for free/supporting wires > 1.0mm and supported wires > 0.8mm for this material. Please thicken the wires of the model."

I have specified what needs to be done on the picture attached. Please message me if you need clarification.

If you know what you are doing and have worked with stl. files and understand the thickness minimum that shapeways requires for 3d printing then this should be a no-brainer.
Wants:
Please keep the demesions of the anchor as they are. This should not be a problem seeing how the edits I need done are very simple.
Don't Wants:
Don't change the size or file type!
Software:
  1. anything that can edit and save in stl. format

Headband
I'm hoping this is a simple project. I have designed a headband (a variation of the coil soccer headband worn by the likes of David Beckham). This one is for the ladies. The coil (unlike the soccer headband) becomes larger at the crown of the head. I will produce it through 3D printing for myself and friends - so far this is just a personal project. Specs are in the attached jpg.

Ring design with branches and bramble
We are looking for a ring that will eventually be printed in sterling, featuring bare branches. Ring band needs to resemble a branch (or branches), and the top of the ring needs branches wrapping about it. Inside this ring we'll be adding an element later, so we need a pocket underneath the branches that will fit an item that is approx 5mmx20mm. The design sketch shows a bit of a lip to the pocket from the side view, this will help keep the item in place. Once the design is approved, we'll need it in US sizes 5-13.
