Filament "drops" falling from extruder while the head travels

Recommended Posts


Is retraction enabled? This is called stringing and is caused by the nozzle oozing some filament while it's not printing.

Retraction can control this, you can also increase travel speed and lower temperature and speed.

By the way be warned that the version of cura you are using is in beta and might behave strangely sometimes
