Hi there

Have been experimenting with the mold feature in Cura and wonder if anyone has considered having the ability to save the mold as an STL so it can then be split into two parts and printed, rather than having to create a one off mold each time

This is not possible in Cura, without much more development effort. The "mold" never exists as a model in Cura, but is produced layer by layer during slicing.

 

There are other tools much more suitable for what you want to do, eg Meshmixer.
