Hi, i want a similar design but instead a ball i need an ellipse

How it ended up?
please share pic

It has an extreme amount of intersecting triangles.
Netfab got them down to 10.
It's printing now, and this far, at layer 70 of 261, everything looks good, but I fear that it might turn bad towards the end.
The "fingers" are flexing more and more as their length increases.
Also, Slic3r has done a terrible job from a printing effort point of view. Instead of going around and around, it goes left-right-left etc.

What would you suggest to fix it?

I can't print this .. am I the only one?

The base appears to be to small.

Please Fix ,, I really like the design
