Why has this thread been marked "solved"? Is this the correct behavior of this function? If so, could we get it renamed in the future because it doesn't do what it is being described by the name. Or add a popup that says "The selected surface causes portions of the model to clip into the bed. [Proceed] [Raise model to prevent clipping]"

Can you please post a Factory File showing this behavior?
But this is not a model dependent issue. It happens with any complex object where the selected face would cause part of the model to clip through the bed. This clipping is actually the desired outcome if you are sectioning a model to print in multiple pieces.

I have 4.0, 4.01 and 4.1.1 on my machine and all three versions behave the same. I have a model with parallel surfaces and regardless of which surface I select it does not drop the model into the table - so while I can understand why you might want it to work so when you pick ANY surface it is placed on the bed regardless of the height on the model, it doesn't look like anything changed between 4.0 and 4.1.1.
I just tried it with my old 4.0 install and it appears you are correct. I swear it used to work differently with the selected surface actually being placed on the bed no matter what clipping issues may arise, but I don't have any older versions installed to test it on (and Simplify3D bafflingly does not host old versions).
