Option to Hollow 3D Model

I have started to use LDraw to build ships and then import them, but one of the issues when the Toolbox attempts to build the model is that the interior blocks in the LDraw design conflict with some of the arrangement in the generator. This can cause the generator to not build the ship evenly or occasionally not know how to piece certain areas together. I think that if there was an option to only have it generate the outer shell, or hallow the model, it would resolve this issue.

It appears that LDraw creates overly complex models.

SEToolbox is very simple in its conversion, creating an armour cube where ever it detects a face.
This is why a hollow models work best.
As LDraw uses lego blocks as the models, and lego blocks have many shapes on the inside of the block, thus it will always generate armor blocks all over.
