Cura adding this weird invisible plane that makes Cura think the model is bigger than it really is, disabling the ability to slice?

Hello everyone! I am having a seriously frustrating issue with Cura recently. I created a model in 3D Builder so I had a temporary stand for my new TV to sit on my dresser. It is so I can put my new TV on the dresser and have it fit. I made sure I measured the dimensions and made them properly. However, Cura is adding this fake/invisible addition to the model, making it "unable to fit" on the printer bed. I searched all over Google for a fix and have found NOTHING. This is needed as I need to have my TV on my current dresser until I can get around to making the entertainment center. I can provide pictures so you can see what I'm talking about. Hoping to find a fix for this..

What cad software are you using?  There appears to be some stuff off to the left in your CAD software.

 

If this is design spark manager then go into the "structure" tab and look for anything that isn't a solid.  As you click on each thing in the structure it highlights it.  Delete (or at least hide) anything you don't want to print.

 

If this is sketchup then get rid of the man or woman that is there by default.

 

If you can't figure out then a quick solution is to use netfabb repair service (google it).  It's free but you have to create an account.

You could try saving as STL instead of 3MF from 3d Builder.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
