I'm considering getting the Ultimaker 2. My questions is will it print fully solid objects or do models always have a hollow interior. Are there settings in Cura for making a fully solid model?
You can plug in whatever percentage fill you want in Cura. from 0 (hollow), 100% (solid) and anywhere inbetween. Any percentage inbetween will generate a square grid pattern. The higher the number the tighter the squares the stronger your part.
But LIke Robert said, very rarely do you ever need a solid part... I've only ever printed one thing solid, and that was the bow part of a mini crossbow.
25% fill already gets you a pretty strong and ridged part.
You can print solid if you want but in 99.9% of all cases that's a giant waste of time and plastic.
