stl looks ok but slicer results in only half the model?

Hoping somebody can help as this is the 1st time I have ever had a problem with the software, the attached stl loads correctly, I rotate on the x-axis, centre on the platform and everything looks OK (before.png) BUT - when I prepare for print the upper parts of the model are missing (prepare-to-print.png)?

I have run every option under repair and nothing has fixed it.

Suggestions please???

Re: stl looks ok but slicer results in only half the model?

It probably means that your STL consists of multiple meshes. Try "Separate Connected Surfaces" in the Mesh menu. If there are separate meshes, they'll all appear in the object list. Just make sure they're all selected when slicing and you should get what you expected.
