Castinga void?

Recommended Posts

I have not purchased yet so I am a super- newbie. I want to seeif this program can do a very specific operation...

I have an stl file (a crocodile skull) from which I'd like to extract the negative space inside. Basically fill it up and then delete the original so I can see (and print) the shapes of the spaces. Someone suggested this could be done in Voxels. Can this be done without being too complicated?

As far as I know you should be able to add your croc skull to a voxel layer, create another voxel layer with your cast shape eg a cube, then right click on your croc skull vox layer and ...subtract from... chose your cube layer then you will have a cube with a hollowed out croc skull.

From there you can split your casting shape into two halves.

PS. Good luck on your project it sounds interesting.

Hello mia,

you can send me your model, and I can make a short tutorial for you on "how to do such kind of operations". That's really easy!
