Issue This object is solid - not a vase #1

I printed this design with the default settings and realized part way into the build (with 10% infill) it is not a vase, but a solid object! The 10% infill should apply to the space between the inner and out shells since - by definition - a vase is hollow. Yep, the definition of vase is "an open container for display of flowers etc". I then realized you have to trick the model into becoming a vase by printing with 0% infill.
Suggestions: 1. Change the model to be hollow, not solid. 2. Warn people that it needs to be printed with 0% infill on the PDF spec sheet. 3. Tell people in the spec sheet what the default dimensions are so they know if they need to scale it for their use.

    Beautiful design, but as an engineer printing his first decorative object, I realized part way into the build (with 10% infill) it is not a vase, but a solid object! The 10% infill should apply to the space between the inner and out shells since - by definition - a vase is hollow. I then realized you have to trick the model into becoming a vase by printing with 0% infill.
