Looking for 3d model of complex shape

Hi to everyone. I am new to the forum. Joined because I’m looking for some help.
I just purchased a 3d printer Voxelab Aquila
My wife’s birthday is next month and I want to print a present for her. It’s going to be a cylindrical shape purse. I’ve already come up with the purse handle, but can nothing do with the purse body.
As a said I want it to be a cylindrical shape. I found some good tracery such as in the pictures. I know there is another shape, but I want to transform one of these into the needed shape. But, I’m not that good at 3d modeling. Will appreciate any advice on what I can do. Maybe some website where I can download similar patterns.

Re: Looking for 3d model of complex shape

The patterns you've provided as examples are typically referenced with the name "Voronoi". They look to me as if they wouldn't work well for a purse because I'd assume you'd like your purse to actually be able to house things without them falling out. :D You could of course overcome that issue by inserting some sort of a fabric liner inside the 3D printed portion. The video linked below showcases how one can add a voronoi pattern to a shape in Fusion 360.

If you're looking to make an evolution of what's in the images attached it's going to be a little difficult to keep things actually inside the purse. Does look kind of cool though :lol:

No worries there will be fabric inside
