Well it happens to me just only very occasionally so I have never taken the time to try and work out why. I just cut it off with a hobby knife. It could be the filament or you could be printing too hot but that would tend to lead to more stringing not just a blob at the end of the print. I use the standard Cura retraction settings although they seem to change settings with their releases so that statement is probably not helpful.

    I typically get a sting at the last point the nozzle was on the print.

    Are you using z hop, that might be making those other blobs and stings. Retraction blobs are something I still can not eliminate.

    you can try messing with the cooling option, if the print head has slowed down on the last few layers I've found it can melt the layers underneath and cause that kind of deformation. Good luck, keep us posted!!!

    No not normally, I only use z-hop if the model is obviously going to be close to or indeed will violate my minimum layer time of 10 secs. Having said that I do not think z-hop comes into effect, unless the minimum layer time is violated - I could be wrong on that, never thought about it.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
