A great and absolutely stunning model as this can not be built using "conventional" manufacturing techniques. Thank you!
Sliced with Skeinforce (50) it took about 5h to print and worked perfectly.
Unfortunately I was unable to produce another good print of the model using other slicers. I was trying MakerBot Dekstop v.3.10, Slic3r v1.2.9 and CarftWare v1.14beta with the same settings as far as possible. All G-Codes generated by the other slicers would either fuse the fins together with the inner shell at the edges or at the hinges. The problem seems to be different combinations of oozing, amount of extrusion for infills, traversing points and build-order of the individual layers by the different algorithms.

I would appreciate if some of you, who have successfully printed this thing, could share which slicer software you use.
