Please show a photo. I'm not sure if this is a printer issue, cura issue, or cad issue.

That looks pretty bad. I'm not sure what that is but my first guess is that your Z axis is moving at half the distance it is supposed to move.

I only see one picture above, perhaps more would help. Anyway my first 2 questions:

1) What brand and model printer is this?

2) Was the part half as tall as expected? If so then this is your primary problem and the ugliness is an artifact of the this issue (steps/mm are wrong).

And what do you mean by "I cut it in half diagonally"? Using CAD software? Using cura software? Using a knife? Using a table saw?
