Step 1: Download and install Prusa Slicer:

Step 2: Use the setup wizard to set up any FDM printer with generic settings, it really doesn't matter which one you choose.

Step 3: Import the terrain model into Prusa Slicer

Step 4: Right-click anywhere on the plate, but not on model. Select „add shape”, then „box”

Step 5: Select „scale” and strech the box so it covers all of the inside of the terrain and goes into the walls, but not over them

Step 6: if you slice it now you will get a full block, but with all shells of the inside visible so there will be no gain in prints, speed nor material usage.

Step 7: A quick fix is just to export plate from slicer as STL, delete everything from plate, open the exported STL file and slice again
