UPDATE: The model has unrepairable topology errors, but I cut about 1mm from the bottom of the model in my slicer and it sliced fine. I tipped this designer. Fantastic reproduction.

Thank you for the tip. I need to clarify this is not my work and I gave credits in the description to the original artist.

Somehow I was mistaken. You can pass it on to the original designer if you wish. Thanks for uploading.

Great model.
Too bad it has so much topology problems, printing it on an SLA printer hollowing the model using MeshMixer is nearly impossible.

Seems like you just did the impossible! Feel free to share your experience or updated model for SLA. I have no experience with SLA.

There is no experience to share. It was nightmare.
Program would crash none stop trying to do boolean operation.
I ended up cutting a very large ugly hole instead of 2 nice small openings as i planned.

This is because model has allot of problems at the bottom of it. Overlapping faces etc.

You may already know this but... there is a free brute force solution to any messy model problems. Get Meshmixer (for free), import your model, and select Edit => Make Solid. Meshmixer basically will automatically sculpt a solid 3d model to match up your model. There are a bunch of options in there for you to play with. For sharp shapes, choose Keep Edge. For organic shapes like this one, fast or accurate will do. It can take a long time and the resulting model tends to be huge in file size but is guaranteed rock solid.

Meshmixer is the one who had problems with the model.
