I'm having issues where Cura keeps filling in the divots I have in my model. In the picture below you can see what it is supposed to look like.

But for some reason it keeps slicing over the divots.

I have checked and I don't have "Remove All Holes" enabled. If anyone knows how to fix this I would greatly appreciate it!

    The red edges on the walls indicate that there are errors in the model.  (Looks like the normals are flipped upside down).

    If you repair the model it will slice as expected.  Right now the errors are confusing the Cura slicing engine as it can't tell the inside from the outside.

     

    I have no idea what size it should be but I repaired it in MS 3D Builder.  Make sure you have "Remove All Holes" disabled as well.

    You were right on the money. I recalculated my normals in Blender and now it slices perfectly! Thank you!

      • 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.
