I'm not sure what this means.  It appears that portions of the model will not print.  I'm not sure how to troubleshoot the issues with this model.

Looks like your model was made with Sketchup. As a rule of thumb, it is easy to make models in Sketchup that do no print well. Sketchup is just was not writter with 3d printing in mind. Here are some tips if you must use sketchup for 3d printing:

You might have luck in Cura by turning off the "Union Overlapping Volumes" option. You can easily find it using the search on top of the Custom settings.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
