Upper part not printed

Looks like there's something wrong with the model. 


If I download it and open it in Cura it says that the model isn't watertight, and when I slice it the model just looks like a bunch of layers with gaps in between.


So you might have to check the model and see if there's something that could be wrong with it or the export process of the file.

The top portion of your model has very thin features, like thickness of no more than 2mm thick. Cura prints about "TWO LAYERS" not enough to form a shape...It's like trying to print a cube of 2mm size
