    Have you tried the "Preview" selection after slicing ?

     

    When you are in the preview section ( post slicing ) there is a slider on the right side of the screen you can use to view the individual layers, which is where you will see the infill at various stages. 

     

    If that's not the issue, we need more info to assist you, things like the version of Cura you are running / an upload of the model(s) you're having issue with / Cura settings you are using / screenshots or all of the  above.

    So your walls - even in the main area are too thin for any infill.  the model itself has no large solid areas.  Am I being clear?

    I found that those images were not that sharp. Please use these ones instead.

    Ok, first thing that looks like a possible explanation - The model pictured here appears to have its  own internal  walls that are thin thus requiring no infill. If you are expecting infill to go into the three hollow cross sections inside the outer shell, you will need to edit the model. If you can upload the STL, we can confirm by slicing and analyzing it  ourselves. 

     

    Edit : gods damn gr5, you are quick !!

    The TEST model is a hollow box so no infill is required to print it.  If it was a solid cube, there would be infill.

    The Main Body consists of walls with large empty areas.  I had to scale it to 50% to fit my build plate.  With my wall thickness at .8 infill did show up in a couple of areas.

    Oh so It has to be a solid object not hallow.

    Yes, if you want infill then you have to design it as a solid object.
