Cleaning up a crude .stl model of an O2 to hopefully produce a good model of an O2

I've just taken a quick look at the base to work on a strategy as to how I'm going to go about cleaning it up!

Here's a shot before I started working on it:

Here's a shot after I'd cleaned up the right-hand corner a bit:

Just look at those vents!!!!

I'm going to have to work out how to clean that mess up!!! (I already have a reasonably good idea as to how I'm going to go about it though!)

I'll slowly start working on it, but will take my time, so this won't be quick!

This is really nice! I always wanted to fix up that O2 model myself and never got around to it. I'm rather close to having a relatively high-quality relatively large 3D printer, but it would be (good) FDM, not SLS as you want. It could probably handle these. Do you plan to release the model? I imagine plenty of people would want to print replacements.
