    The issue is with the model, it is very broken. That is causing issues with Cura when you are trying to slice it.

    Any way of showing me, it looks fine in the design program

    Cura should be telling you this.

    That blue and green section is basically unknown geometry.
    This will be a problem in how the model was designed.. or how it was exported to STL.

    I don't use sketchup so not sure how to help there

    Morning 

    ok I sliced the model in half with a square plane, so that surface has to be flat, in cura it looks exactly the same , how can that be?

    I get this in 5.2.1.  I'd say the bottom is flat as the skirt stays outboard now.  The sphere is gone though.

    PrusaSlicer  Looks to be near identical to the Cura slice I posted above.

    Post a new screenshot of the slice in Cura and what looks wrong to you.  I thought it looked good.

    Here is your "Phone stand bowling 23.stl" in Mesh Mixer.  You can see what @Dustin is talking about.  It's that one piece.

    This is a view from the other side with the Mesh Mixer Inspector turned on.

    Here is the #23 model repaired by MS 3D Builder and sliced in Cura 5.2.1.  This looks good but the build plate side of the bowling ball won't come out very well.

    Here is a project file with that early model.  I didn't pay a lot of attention to the settings other than I did adjust the Line Width to .45.

    0.6 nozzle at 0.8 Line Width and .3 Layer Height.  I thought it looked better at .7 Line Width.

    Here is a project file. My E3 Pro is the active printer.  It's the model without the bowling ball, .6 nozzle, .8 line width.

    This is a Cura project file.  If you open it in IdeaMaker you will just get the model.

    Here is an IdeaMaker project.  Remove the ".3mf" extension to open it in IdeaMaker.

    When the skirt cuts though the model like that then there is a gap between the model and the build plate.  Stiction will be a problem for the head.

    Try setting the "Z" to -0.1mm or -0.2mm.

    The rotation tool has a "lay flat" tool for models that are slightly tilted.  Ms 3D Builder has an equivalent "Settle" tool.

      • 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
