Hmm. File looked good in view3dscene, though there was this(?) rectangle on the back of the model. Probably intersecting geometry, and shapeways site software deleted the wrong part in its attempt to fix the model.

Yes, I do think there are manifold issues with the model.

8owtie8rad, before exporting the model, make sure it is Solid and manifold, and that all the faces are facing the right direction. You can use the Solid Inspector plugin to make sure that it's solid, and turn off textures [View > Face Style > Monochrome] to be sure the faces are all correctly oriented. All the visible faces should be white - Right click > Reverse Faces if you see a blue-ish face pointing out.

If you still need help, you may upload or PM me the model and I'll take a look at it for you.
