Cura printing only a part of the model

I have this problem in Cura 4.3 y upgraded  to 4.4 and I still have the problem.

The model is rendered complete but the adhesion pattern is only in some part of the model ant that is what is being printed. Here is a preview of my model

So from the image it appears your model isn't sitting flat.  One circular area is touching the bed but the rest is not - it is maybe 0.00000000000001mm higher.

 

You could fix it in cad but a faster fix is in cura.  Go to menu "preferences" "config cura" and go to "general" tab and uncheck "automatically drop models to the build plate".

 

Then use the move tool and click on the part and set the Z value to a negative value.  Try -0.2mm to start then move that value closer to 0mm until it slices "wrong" again and go back.  If you are lucky you only have to shave off 0.1mm of the bottom of the part to get it to print "correctly".
