Posted · hollow an object

Hello

I want to hollow an object, leaving a shell thickness of about 10% . The shell will be composed of - first shell, infill, and second shell.

Is it possible?

How?

    Yes, I am trying to get CURA to do this.

    If I am printing an object and want it to be hollow, why not defining shell thickness and print?

    Let's presume that we have a model of a glass that we want to print. Will I be able to define shell thickness and print?  So why not if it's a box?

    If you want a thick shell and then hollow then it is easy.  Just set infill % to zero.

     

    But if you want infill between the outer shell and this new shell then you need to create the inner empty area in CAD.
