Looks like it's tilted a few degrees relative to the bed. Use the 'surface to bed' option in Slic3r and try again? That minimal bed contact is what is doing you in.

Agree the slanted base is a death knell for any print. Also - the brim should really be sticking better than you are experiencing. You might go back and really wash the steel sheet with a few drops of decent detergent and really hot water; handling everything only by the edges, and using only fresh paper towels to wash and dry -- no hand towels, dish sponges, etc. And when installing the sheet, again, handle it by the edges because even one fingerprint will dislodge a print the size you are making.

@Vintage: where is that "Surface to Bed" option found in the UI? As far as I know Slic3r PE doesn't have the feature. A user must 'painfully' rotate the part fractions of a degree and reslice to check alignment. Or use the CUT method to trim an angled base.
