    it seems the same problem you can have in sketchup. when you zoom/pan/rotate, part of the model ic cutted away? if it is so, maybe it is a problme with the scale of the model. a revit model maybe is in meters or feet, a 3d printer model is usually in millimeters, so the cut plane in the rendering engine could behave erratically...

    in sketchup it easy to work in meters and then scale all when you are ready.

    I had a lot of problem in cura with the 3dpreview window, it was always black. after I disinstalled some software from my win7 64 PC suddenly it starts working like a charm!

    I hope this help...

    Scaling down to 0.2%? That means your model is so large it's outside of the camera "view area" at 1.0 scale. So that's why it's not showing it.

    you can scale in netfabb, aftter the repair and then export the stl.

    by the way, I'm an architect and so your experience with revit models is interesting. I think that a lot of info that revit put in the model is really not used (if not un-healthy) by our 3d slicers and printers.

    OT:

    at this point you need a SHELL command (like in inventor or solidworks or maybe the sketchupp version could work). a shell command remove all the internal geometry of a 3d object and gives you only the external shell. this cut the polygons and make the object better for 3dprinting. netfabb make something similar when you repair (it closes holes and remove SMALL internal objects).

    internal object as far as I know doesn't prevnt you from printing but made the 3d slicing operation really not clean in particular th infill section.

      • 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.
