Yes, it's a very good 22 inch model of the original 44 inch studio model[^]. I got it at a website for 3D printing. So why not scale it at 200% and print it at the size of the original model?

The problem is that the 3D model appears to have been intended for rendering and not for 3D printing. Especially because of the size I have to cut apart the model in more managable chunks, replace details that were intended for texturing by printable 3D objects and even redesign some parts that are 'not round enough'.

Both editing and printing involve a lot of intersecting 3D objects with planes and recalculating the objects accordingly. In most cases that's just some math, but sometimes two polygons intersect in a very awkward way and it's hard to come up with an algorithm that handles these cases reliably. So I can feel the OP's pain and it's great that he found a 'good enough' type of solution to his problem.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
