    The print is for a silicone candle mould - the posts is for wick holes in the mould.

    The printer also starts extruding when they are not there.


    It always starts extruding the exact same place, at all types of prints.

    Pretty sure you are printing with a too high temperature. which courses stringing.

    The mid air print is probably som structure part that ditten stick to the build plat, and then the printer still tries to print it "in air" or again just extreme stringing that gets deposited somewhere along the printhead travel route.
