Small holes ignored by cura

Hi everyone! 
I wanna print this, with 4 holes inside (for magnets), but Cura ignores my holes. Remove all holes setting is not checked and normals are flipped correctly in blender. It's 2x2x1 cm and holes are 1x5 mm. I tried to search online, but I can't find anything that would make a difference, so I thought I'd try asking here.

    I think your model needs some more work.  If you subtracted cylinders from your model to make the pockets it would appear they were not done correctly.

    I would suggest you use the Setting Visibility too (to the right of the Setting Search box) and set the visibility to "All" so you can see what might be going on.  I think it's a model issue though.

    You could post the STL file here.

    I uploaded the stl file. It's just a test, how it would print and work, I thought it was simple enough. I used boolean for the holes.

    It looks like it's something in your settings.  In the Experimental section make sure "Make Overhangs Printable" is turned off.  That one and remove holes are the only settings that should do this.

    It worked! Thank you so much for the help, I'm so happy now. 

    I didn't even think of that setting, I'm glad I learned!

    I didn't think of it because it usually adds a chamfer that doesn't require support.  In this case it seems to have filled the entire pocket.

      • 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
