Cat Litter Scoop for Biokats Micro-Freshby

Yes, I know, "Just another cat litter scoop!". But for my brand of cat litter (Biokats Micro-Fresh) I need a shovel with a mesh size of 4mm as the best compromise between catching the finest clots and wasting unused cat litter. And because my maine coons produce big, big lumps in their XXL-toilet I need a big and stable scoop. But there were no suitable shovels to buy or to print. So I made my own one. It's not streamlined or artificial designed but it works very well for me and does it's job. For a convenient angle of the handle and to prevent a lot of support structures the handle will be printed separated from the blade and attached after print. Additionally the handle will become more stable if the layers are running in parallel with the shape. To save filament the handle is designed hollow but is stable enough for the biggest lumps.
Edit 2017/07/22: Added a bigger model of the shovel blade to sieve more effective in an XXL-toilet.
Edit 2017/08/07: V2 of blades with strengthened leading edge and smoother transition from handle to blade uploaded
