It won't be any heavier than a resin one.

Remember you don't need as much infill for as many pieces as you think.

I'd you print with 3 perimeters  and no infill it'll be lightweight but still strong and keep the weight down.

Do you still have this file (or files)? I've been looking for it on thingiverse and it's nowhere to be found.

Rafal Fettworks on Shapeways created the files and made them available for free.
