Thanks, Magweb, very useful! (and thanks RMS for creating this feature in MM ;)

About criteria based selection tools, I miss (maybe it exists but I wasn't able to find it?) an automatic tool to select area planar enough (select all connected facets whose angle is below some threshold). I know it is possible to filter selection based on angle but you still have to paint whole area.

This is generally caused by isolated unselected triangles in your selection. Try to expand selection (>) once or several times depending on your mesh density, then reduce it (<) the same number of times.
Note also that if you double click on boundary, you get a selection that should be OK.

You can check and change the size (and units) of your model using Analysis -> Models/dimensions

An alternative to close ends of tube (after joining helix halves as described by Magweb):
- in select mode, double click on each facing boundaries to select them
- Pressing shift, unselect a small portion of each boundary. Both unselected areas must be more or less in front of each other.
- Use the bridge tool to fill most of the end, except for a small hole where boundary was not selected.
- Close the hole by clicking on the blue sphere in inspector tool.
- Repeat for the other end.

As soon as I can figure out how to attach photos I'll update this post

While replying, click on "Additional options" to see attachment capability.

the fit-to-view button in the hotbox (hold spacebar, button to right of magnifying glass)
Btw, what about adding help bubbles on hotbox buttons?

Are you  the "Anoved" I know from LEGO world? If so, welcome here (and if not, welcome nonetheless...)

- that within this tool double clicking on the selected areas creates handles (red spheres)?
Right click works too (and may be easier)

That's where you see the usefulness of some documentation - I forgot about the "1" smoothing and double click on smooth boundary...

As told by Magweb, different users have different usages! See for example my low-poly count tutorials, something MM was not created for initially.

From what I see in your image, it seems that your heightmap is not a single skin but does have some thickness. And it seems that the inner skin is inside out (pink areas are supposed to be seen from inside an object). After that... the holes and (perhaps) self intersecting surface near the tips will not help! Could you share the file?

Weird. Can you share your scaled mesh before trying to hollow it?

You have a mesh dimension problem, your model measure only 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.3mm so meshmixer can't hollow it with a plausible wall thickness. As suggested by RMS, enlarge your mesh using Analysis -> Units/Dimensions tool.
