Posted · how do I make a solid volume within a larger volume?

I want to make a 'solid' box, several cms in each dimension and within that box I need to place some solid volumes to screws to be inserted.

How do I go about this please.

I'm using an O+ with Cura 3.4

    Short answer: Using CAD software.


    I'm not sure exactly what you are asking.  When you put "solid" in quotes the first time - that's probably for a good reason.  I think you mean "hollow"?


    Or maybe you are saying you want some parts of the model to have light infill - say 20%.  And other parts of the box to have 100% infill?  Is that what you want?  That can be done in Cura.  Here is a video to explain the second thing.  Maybe you want a 3rd thing and just need to draw a picture of what you mean:

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
