What is this extra geometry?

Hi guys,

When I try to print my files I get that round 3rd piece in the corner. How do I get rid of it. Or is it something the software needs?

 

Thanks

That's a prime tower.
The software doesn't need it, but it is advantageous if you print with two materials. 
You can disable the prime tower under dual extrusion -> enable prime tower.

It is called a Prime Tower. You can turn it off in the custom settings if you want. Use the search box and type “prime”. Note that it is there to improve the switching between extruders though.
