Filling hollow spaces?

Recommended Posts

Hello there.

I've found something on Thingiverse and wanted to print it. I had to split the body into four parts and now have encountered a little problem in Cura while I examined the pieces.

The bottom of the case pieces is, as soon as I look at the body in layer view, grayed out and won't print either.

How can I fill out the spaces with Cura?

I'm using version 3.0.4 on Windows.
