I want to report that the mail weave work and can be made into a sheet.

I also found out several interesting points.
Although the weave work best if all the rings are bent, it can also use normal rings.

The black rings are the rings that needs to be bent and it can also be solid without making construction impossible.

I will make the sheet larger and report further progress. The stiffening in one direction disappear with this thin rings probably because the depth of the bent determine how much it can flex.

The result wouldn't be optimal as I don't have a metal punching die.
