If you make an object with internal cavities, what will be inside the cavities? Will it just be air, or might there also be support material inside it?

there will be either material or support material in the cavities. To prevent this you could make a small hole in the model to let the material out after building.

So would it be possible to make a light bulb, for example, with internal wirings and stuff? That would be cool with the Transparent Detail material. Cool

hmm a light bulb? Smile
Not sure how you see that? But yes you can make a model with details within an enclosed space. So yes you could model a (non-functional) light bulb.
