Posted (edited) · Printer doesn't start to print, immediately finished

Hi, I want to print an architectural model. It is originally in .obj. In .obj my printer seems to start, but time to print is unknown.  When I start the job, it is finished in 2 seconds, my printer tells me the job is finished. So didn't print at all. 

I tried to convert to .stl, but it is still the same.... who can help me?

Original the model is made in sketchup. 

Thanks for your help

    Ik probeer een architectuurmodel te printen, echter hij print niet, omdat Cura denkt dat hij geen materiaal verbruikt.  Is dus meteen klaar met printen, nog voor hij gestart is.... hoe los ik dit op? Ik heb al ingevoerd dat ik PLA gebruik....

    There may be something wrong with the model, or at least something that Cura doesn't like.

    In Cura - what does it look like in Preview?  That will be what is sent to the Gcode file.

    Have you tried to export the file in a different format? (something other than .OBJ that Cura will open)
