    That worked out great. Could you share your modeling technique for that?

    EDIT: I guess Justin Howlett would need to do that. Does he post on the forum?

    Hey thanks all for the comments, it's an interesting project which will lead to a better designs unique to 3D printing.

    Jrey, the method is to create a shelled form and then split or trim the form with projected curves. Most NURBS software like Rhino 3D and Maya will do this.
