Missing part

I have tried to print this Lancaster Bomber 3 times. I have tried to repair it through Blender.

I have tried changing the orientation on the build plate, always get the same result.

The prepare view looks OK I think. It says its not manifold though.

Any advice would be very much appreciated as this is supposed to go on top of a birthday cake for  70 year old.

Many thanks

It looks you are using Windows 10. Load each stl-file once in "3D Builder", confirm the repair operation and save the repaired file. That's the easiest way to repair such models.
(I think, 3D Builder is pre-installed or is at least available for free in the Microsoft Store)


Is it this model?

    • 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
