Difficulty hollowing out box

Hi all,


I am very new to CAD design work, basically only self taught over ~20 hours on things like TinkerCAD.

I am designing a box to keep components for a board game I have made. The box has gone very well and I am happy with the overall design, however it is currently solid and I would like to make it hollow to save on some resin when I print it. Ideally I would like a 2-3mm shell around all the edges with a hollow centre.


I have attempted to make a shell however the program is having difficulty with it. I have attempted to rewind through the timeline and trial at different timeslots (eg. before filleting) but that hasn't worked either.


Any suggestions to help this beginner out?

Your tray shape, with all the fillets and thin partitions, cause a Shell of the thickness you to fail because the walls would overlap each other.
