    If your models consists of multiple separate pieces, make sure to align them in your CAD program, so that all bottoms are in the same horizontal plane.

     

    Also check if there are no tiny pieces out of view somewhere in the design. If a tiny thing is sitting below the bottom of the other object, then that tiny thing will sit on the glass, and the rest will float.

     

    Or in Cura, split the design in separate parts.

     

    Any of these should work, I think.
