I see what you mean:

You have a problem with your model, it seems there is a failure in the STL. I also got the message, that the model ist not watertight.  Normally when there is a hole then it doesn't matter if you lay it flat or not, the hole is always printed. 

 

So I suggest du check the STL or the export process of your CAD software. You can also try to repair the STL with 3DBuilder or via the Netfabb online service.

 

Do you use Sketchup?

    SketchUP is known to produce (export) damaged STL files, if we have here problems like yours, then it is always drawn in SketchUP. So I suggest to use another CAD software TinkerCAD or Fusion360 for drawing. (both are free)

    turn off the “Remove All Holes”, “Union Overlapping Volumes”, and the “Make Overhangs Printable” settings.

      • 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
