Black blobs appear at random.

Recommended Posts

Have a look at the nozzle while printing. It could also be that molten material accumulated on the outside of the nozzle, especially on small objects, or when you have a bit of overextrusion. And then that starts to burn, sinks, and gets deposited at random spots on the print.

In my experience, thick light-brown blobs usually come from the outside of the nozzle, while thin black flakes usually come from the inside, with PLA and PET. But this may be different for other materials of course.

Anyway, regularly doing an atomic pull never hurts. And you should definitely do one whenever changing filament.
