Some parts confuse the slicer but it might also be that your model is not quite watertight. It's worth running the "autofix" (not perfectly reliable) on your model inside the Up software or you could also try running it through netfabb http://cloud.netfabb.com/ to make sure it's clean. You could also just try flipping your model upside down to see if the slicer is less confused and makes proper support.

Rotating 180 on z only. Fixed it but part lifted up during printing on perf board with ABS

Have you tried using the purple elmer’s disappearing glue stick?

I use that on all my prints and it works amazing especially on the perf board
you can use water to wash it off afterwords if you would like.
