Solved, Use "Ignore Small Z Gaps", was: Prevent Joining when Slicing Thin Z Gaps

Howdy folks!

Getting back into Cura with the new release, tried printing an item ( https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1767851 ) with two parts meant to be unattached, separated by a small z-gap. I had real trouble getting the parts to separate (before I figured out how to single step the print-preview I couldn't tell it was bonded in the g-code).

This won't embed, but click for a here pic

I thought perhaps the issue was the oversized first layer, but even turning that off leaves the items joined. I tried the object in a couple competing slicer packages and they do not have this issue.

What do I do?

Thanks!

    Ah, I think I found it. There's a hidden setting:

    "Ignore Small Z Gaps" under "Shell" in settings. Clicking that fixed most of my issue.
