    It appears that some of your normals are backwards.  What cad did you use to create this?  It's very easy to fix this in blender or sketchup.  If you used one of those cad let me know and I'll give you simple instructions to fix in cad.

     

    Anyway in cura I sliced your STL and got the same issue.  Then I ran the mesh tools "fix normals" and it slices great!  It also mentioned your model has 14 submeshes - which is not good but it sliced fine so do this:

     

    In the upper right corner of Cura click "marketplace" and make sure you are on the "plugins" tab and install "Mesh Tools".  Then restart Cura.  Now right click on your model, choose "mesh tools" and choose
     "fix model normals".

    Thank you very much. It really works. I use SketchUp. And now, when I know where the problem is, I installed "Solid inspector" plugin, which fixed my normals. And everythin goes fine. Thank you very much again 🙂

    Nice.  In sketchup - all faces should be white.  If they are gray you can right click and click "reverse faces".  Or of course you can use solid inspector.

     

    But once you see how easy it is to fix normals with the mouse you may find it's irresistible to fix them manually.

      • 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
