Sorry to ask this noob question but:

Why does CURA create random gaps in Z-axis of the structure?

What can I do to close the model?

The model was created in Catia and should be OK...

THX for a hint...

    Something is wrong with your model in those areas.  Look at your model in xray mode.  If you see any shades of red then thats a problem (either a hole in the wall of your solid or an extra infinitely thin internal wall.

    Most cad programs don't make it possible to create non-solids but sketchup is the opposite - they make it tricky to create solids.  I don't know cadia. But even if you don't use sketchup - the photos in this article make it clear what I am talking about:

      • 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.
