The part is defective.  I know it looks fine in freecad but it's not fine.  Since it isn't your part I recommend you try netfabb repair.

 

netfabb free repair service is here (you have to create a free account first):

As far as splitting it up - Cura did that back in version 16.X but not anymore.  Freecad should be able to do that but I don't know freecad very well.  meshmixer (also free) might be easier.  Try googling this subject.  meshmixer might also have some model repair features.

    If that's all it takes then it's probably just the "normals" are backwards in a portion of the print.   STL file contains unordered triangles and each triangle has "normal" with it to say which side of the triangle faces air and which side faces plastic.

    No, if the "Remove all holes" option was enabled, then Cura did exactly what it was instructed to do, and the model was likely just fine.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
