Not needed mode appeared in cura

Hello everyone,

I am new to the 3D printing. I have a component to print which i designed and exported from Solidworks. This is a simple plud which requires a support material to print out that shape. I am using one of our  printer which is ultimaker 3+ with two nozzles.

The issue I have is an additional model/square block appearing in the corner of the printing table. This item is not part of my design, it is adding a waste material and printing time. 

Please could someone let me know how can I get rid of that model?

I checked STL model in solidoworks and I cannot see this square block at all. I have tried different stl setting with different quality but also didn't help.

I attached snapshots from cura software and also from solidoworks.

 

Thank you in advance for your help.

That is a priming tower. There may be a setting in Cura to turn it off but when using two extruders you need a priming tower to enable smooth transition between the two filaments.

That setting is aptly named "Enable Prime Tower". You can find it using the Search field atop the custom settings.
