Try the "fix horrible" settings in expert settings. That *might* help.

Basically your model is not manifold meaning it has inerior structures or more likely some holes in the outer surface. That's fine for a visual-only model but not fine for something you want to print. Cura doesn't know inside from outside - a human knows instantly that the inside would be roughly the area just above the layer below. But cura doesn't know.

If you look at the model in cura xray view it will show your problem spots in red/brown colors. That way you can zoom in and find the missing (or extra) surfaces.

Or alternatively there are packages that fix models. Free websites. google "how do I make my STL manifold".

    Do the missing layers show up in other views, or when you travel down layer by layer?

    Very occasionally in a few models I also had similar gaps in the layer-view, in an old Cura version. But this was just a rendering issue in Cura. In other views (normal, transparant, x-ray) everything showed up okay, and when viewing the missing parts layer by layer, they also showed up correctly; and most important: they printed fine.

    If they are also missing in all other views, or shown in red in x-ray view, then obviously it is a model-issue.

    Don't just try and print this and hope for the best. If you want a second opinion you can drop the gcode file onto this website: gcode.ws

    But if you scroll through layer by layer and some layers are missing then they definitely wont' print.

      • 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
