Object not Printing due to missing layers.

Probably these are very very thin. To verify that's the problem, try setting the line width to say 0.1mm (not layer height - line width). If now it prints everything then that was the problem. If it still won't print then maybe your parts are not solid which is a common problem if you use sketchup. xray view shows problems with non-solids e.g. a wall floating in air with no thickness - as red.

But if these are very thin objects as I suspect then... why? They look like rocks - why can't you let cura decide if it should be hollow inside - why does the model have dual walls?

    The option might be hidden by default. Click on the gear icon or go to Preferences to unhide it.

    When there are missing layers, it usually indicates that the design has errors. I would suggest you run it through a repair service such as https://makeprintable.com/ to automatically fix those errors.

    What reemaj3D says is true and might be the cause but in this case I think it is more likely your part is simply too thin. The walls need to be at least 2X of the line width.

    That was a screen shot of cura 2.3.1. You have to play around more with cura. There are features all over the place (left side of screen, right side, gears, menu system). It's good to learn your way around cura before using it to slice something.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
