Go to all my models

I am attempting to upload an object file to print at 3" tall in nickel polished steel as a medallion to show someone as a sample. I created the model in the same manner as a metal lapel pin that I previously had printed successfully, however, this time the design is failing with "Model is Not manifold." and "Model failed during repair." errors when it goes through the automatic checks at upload.

The file was created in SketchUp I have previewed the file separately in a 3D viewer and do not see anything obvious that could be the issue, although I am relatively new to creating my own files. Does anyone more experienced have any suggestions as to possible problems that I could look for to fix?
