Brim not activating in 14.06.1?

For some reason, Cura won't add a brim (or a skirt) to my part. Could I have done something to cause this?

Brim is selected on the General tab, and 10 lines define in expert settings. Skirt settings are also defined to print a skirt at least 150mm long.

    I switched to another part with same settings, and the skirt is added, but not the brim.

    Also, my part is only about 45mm dia and placed in the center of my UM1 platform.

    OK, well, I got my brim back. I think the bottom surface (edge) is too narrow for Cura to make a slice for my .8mm nozzle. I set Cura to cut off .1mm, and the brim is back.

    Good enough w/o the skirt. I can use the brim to tune the height.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
