    First thing - go to the Mesh Fixes section and see if "Remove all Holes" is enabled.  If it is then disable it.  It's a specialty setting that (like Make Overhangs Printable) is rarely used.

    If it is already turned off then use the "File | Save Project" command and post the 3mf file here.  Sketchup is notorious for creating models inside-out and Cura gets confused.

    This model should have brought up the "Model is not water-tight and may not print correctly." warning.  If a model has an open seam then it isn't water tight and the slicer can't figure out where the outside ends and the inside begins.

    Cura has an "X-Ray" view that can highlight those sorts of errors.

    The red areas are errors in the model.

    Here it is in MS 3D Builder.  You can see the warning in the lower right corner.

    Here it is sliced.

    Here is the repaired model.  MS 3D Builder is pretty good at repairs.  Cura has a plugin called Mesh Tools that is available in the MarketPlace.  Install it and restart Cura.  When you select a model and then right click, Mesh Tools will show up in the menu.  It has some repair capability but there are tools available that are geared to repair.
