After a few coworkers tried to make this one (and failed) using cura to slice things, I gave it a go with a Prusa i3 MK2 and the Slic3r Prusa Edition.

After adding the STL, I had to double-click the part, and hit "Split part" or else the slicing didn't realize all the segments should be 'connected' and 'hollow'. I'll attach photos of the failure mode, and the successful part after splitting.

I did mine in 'fast' mode (0.35mm layers), with a 50% Honeycomb infill. It took about 1:30 to produce.

Thank you the report, very interesting. Do you think the STL file is bad or does Cura have problems? I have only printed this on one of the earlier Makerbots with the Makerbot software. Glad you found the printing combination that works. DeWalt should have included one in the box. :)
