This is the tenth episode of the Cura Custom Settings series, where we are going to analyse the tenth tab of the custom settings menu in Ultimaker Cura 3.4, that is the Special modes tab.
Despite this tab is quite short if we compare it wit other, with only a few options, the options that we can control in this tab are very funny to play with, such as allowing us to print in vase mode, or making moulds to cast objects with wax or other materials.
Along the video we will experiment with a lot of options, and finally we kept activated the next ones: Print Sequence, Mold, Minimal Mold Width, Mold Roof Height, Mold Angle, Surface Mode, Spiralize Outer Contour and Smooth Spiralized Contours.
Playing with this settings will allow you to create really cool printed objects such as the ones I shown in the video, and much more!.

About Ultimaker Cura 3.4.
Cura is one of the most common slicer software that are mostly used for 3D Printing. It supports a huge variety of 3d printers such as the BQ Hephestos, Original Prusa i3 MK2, Ultimaker 2, Ultimaker 3, Rostock, etc.
It allows us to print in 3d in three different ways:
The first is by uploading the .gcode files into an SD Card, that we will insert in our 3D Printer. Second, we can connect our 3D Printer to our computer via USB, and control it directly from our Cura software, and finally, there is an option to control some 3D Printers at the same time remotely, via internet.
Ultimaker Cura in the version 3.4, or the most recent version depending when you watch this video, is available both for Mac OS and Windows operating systems.
