Getting an Object to Lay Flat in Cura

How do you quickly and easily get an object to lay flat in Cura? It seems much more difficult than in past versions of the software. Thanks!

sometimes it can take several tries to lay flat, rotating it manually can help sometimes

The lay flat is horribly implemented. It's fairly slow and doesn't even always give the best solution.

If lay flat doesn't work then you can hold shift and do smaller rotational adjustments.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
