New 3D Print: Hex-shelf concept

I wanted to print something a bit, “beefier” on my C-Bot, so I came up with this hexagonal shelf design in Maya:

Sliced in Simplify 3D, took just over five hours to print. Little under 12″ across, 5″ deep, printed in Makergeeks “Soulful Blue” pla.  Used the same 1mm E3D Volcano nozzle with 0.75mm layer heights. Intentionally didn’t print the roof to show off the cool infill. Weighs 630g, 1 shell, 15% ‘fast hexagonal’ infill,  which came out pretty organic looking since the slicer sort of ‘skips’ every other infill layer (as you can see if you inspect the close-up pic) and only prints half of what it should.
