Model shows correctly in Normal view, but not in layer.

I have this STL file from a customer that shows up correctly in Normal view, but it doesn't show most of it in layer mode and thus it doesn't print out correctly.

Here's the STL file:

Any help would be appreciated.

    Yup layer view shows the base but stops once you get to the section with the holes. The section with the base has infill, the section with the holes does not. I am assuming that the thickness of the section with the holes is too thin. Going under .4mm is asking for trouble. Going under .8mm will give you a part with a very thin wall and little strength, but will work.

    Thanks Yellowshark, I've never encountered this and haven't had experience with items this small with such thin walls. I've passed along this info. to the customer.

    Cheers!

    If the thinness of that wall is crucial to the customer then it should work with .4mm although I am not sure how the small holes will turn out, I have never tried holes on a wall that thin - but we can have a look at that if you get a new model and still have problems.
