I have an object but i want to hollow it out so i am just printing the 'shell' of the object. Can Cura be used to hollow an object?

Hi and welcome,

In cura you set the infill of the object, if you want it hollow set the infill to 0%

You can also just print one single shell (this is usually called vase-mode) in Cura it's called spiralize, it's mostly usefull for vases (of course).
