No support on layer 1?

Recommended Posts

I have an object that I want to print in a specific orientation but Cura isn't generating support material for layer 1 thus starts extruding it on layer 2 which doesn't stick to the bed and makes a big mess!

When the object is flipped, support material is generated for layer 1.  Any ideas what is wrong? settings? or bug?
