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?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
