Mold Making Visualization

New here! Is there a way to make a mold out of a model or viceversa (visualizing the outcome from the mold shape)? Like creating the inverse of the solid I already have? I want to make a mold from this ornate frame and I sort of made a mold for the Aztec shape and would like to see how would it look before trying to print. 

Thank you for your help!

Hi @giselle.reyes007 

Great question. If you create another component or body that represents rather mold. Then from the Modify menu use the Combine tool. The Combine tool is Fusion 360’s boolean tool. Here is a link to a short YouTube video that walks through the Combine tool.

Let us know if this is what you were looking for.
