If someone can help me please:

When I have my 3D draw how can I do to fixed it and hollowed it to 1.5mm with 3 holes under base (3 holes in bottom of the base to help the tech guys to clear all support material from the inside)?

If I don't do that my mini-statue for example will be more expansive?

Thanks a lot,
Harold. Smile

Yes, you need holes connecting the inside void to the outside, but they can be arbitrarily small. They don't actually need to be able to remove the support material (it is discarded anyway), but the software can't calculate the volume properly if you don't have a hole.
