In cura most layers of the model wont print

What the print should look like: 5a33363174a59_Screenshot(158).thumb.png.8e7306ae8ed1d1758840cad426d17ff3.png

How it prints: (2x smaller and is missing many layers, gets stuck when loading at 61%) 5a3336309a22f_Screenshot(159).thumb.png.43dcda6929507a3e0361d87c24933361.png5a3336309a22f_Screenshot(159).thumb.png.43dcda6929507a3e0361d87c24933361.png

    First of all I would print it with the circle down flat on the bed.  There is a rotate feature in cura. Once rotated with circle "down" you can disable support and the part will print much more beautifully and also much faster.

    It's hard to tell what the problem is but from looking at the pictures it looks like your part has an outer and an inner wall with nothing in between.  So if you pass an imaginary line along the rotational axis of this part (the tip to the base) you will pass through 4 (not 2!) sets of meshes (surfaces).  First the tip of the part, then - maybe a half millimeter later a second surface.  Then nothing for a short distance - maybe 5mm? And then 2 more meashes.  Is this explanation clear so far?

    Anyway the thickness of these walls are much less than 0.8mm (the minimum wall thickness for a .4mm nozzle as it makes two passes.

    Did you create this part yourself in CAD?

    View the part in "xray mode".  You have your normal mode shown and slice view shown but there is another view mode called xray.  In that mode anything colored red (dark red, light red, bright red) is a problem.  I don't think you have this issue but that's another possibility.
