26937-printing-a-design-with-infil-exposI am trying to make a mold for a wax part, I want to have a print that is open on the top and bottom for cooling but I want the floor of the cavity to be solid.

I can have the bottom open by setting the bottom thickness to 0 but if I set the to to 0 the cavity ends up with a open base. I have pictures of what I want but don't know how to add them to this. i have seen this done on other printer software by setting it to not print the top 10 layers. Is that possible with Ultimaker Cura? Note: I have a Ultimaker S5

the first 2 images were printed by someone else the last is what happens in cura leaving the top and bottom set to 0

    You could model the bottom of the cavity as a separate part and use Per Model Settings in Cura to specify top and bottom thickness larger than zero.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
