Inspired by the complex forms of radiolarians, where intricate pattern is integral to structure, these shapes derive from a simulation of spring meshes which form mirrored catenoid surfaces. We created interactive software to morph, twist, and subdivide each design, transforming a simple mesh to a complex patterned structure.

Nicely printed on the Davinci 3D on normal settings, no raft, no supports. However turned to plastic mush when printed a second using the finest settings.
I changed the orientation as you see in my picture. I used the standard settings for medium resolution. No raft, no supports, bare building Plexiglas platform.
When printing the bottom and top parts, use a flat metal object and hold it where needed to support the filament when the extruder passes. Not too much trouble as it requires your attention only at the beginnig and end of the process.
