Line up pin missing on mold

JWW
I was hoping that someone here can identify why one of the lineup pins is missing on my mold and how to solve the problem?

I suspect the import()ed STL has issues, check it with Netfabb Basic.

or if I've done something stupid...

Sometimes the parts are not there where on expexts them to be.
To test this you can use the % and/or the # operator:

difference(){
    %cube(10);
    translate([0,0,5])#sphere(3);
}

Thanks very much for the quick responses, it's appreciated. Can't believe I couldn't figure this out but the model indeed was the culprit. I ran it through netfabb but I then forgot to run it back through Meshlab and MeshMixer which did the trick. <duh>
