My student, Zoe, printed this duck at school today. She says:
This 3D print was a great one to choose. It was simple and it only took 2 hours. I used no supports and a raft. i used 10% infill and 2 shells. Thank you.

Thanks for your reply!
That workflow does indeed sound quite hard to accomplish, especially because I don't have alot of experience using Rhino..
But maby I'll give it a go one day.
Thanks for your offer aswell, I'll keep that in mind.
Have a nice day!

Hi sir, may I aks wich program you used to create these sort of hole-structure? I'm looking for this teqnique for months.. Great work!

Dear sir. Your question shall be answered, but it is not an easy process:

My current workflow is like this:
-Resuce and remesh the mesh in Meshlab
-Correct/repair and optimize the mesh in Rhino
-Import the mesh in Blender and allocate all the lines with flat solid pipes
Then i remesh everything until it looks like this.
This normaly takes up to several hours and is frustrating if it doesn't look good at the end.

I usually do different mesh-"resolutions" of the same object parallel
(mostly 3-6), so when it looks ok I have often more than one good
It took me a while to get some experience to get the first few steps right. The rest ist mostly a diligent piece of work.
