Initial Prime Smushed and Dragged to Print

Hi I just upgraded to 4.6.1 from 4.4.1

Honestly I have only seen one thing that I don't know how to fix. After warm up the nozzle moves to the lower left corner as always, stops about 20mm above the bed and primes the nozzle for about 5 seconds leaving a coil of filament. Then something it's never done before, the nozzle comes down to about 3mm smushing into the blob of filament and taking it for a ride to the print causing a mess and a failed print. For the moment my fix is I just sit and wait for the blob to be done and I quickly remove it before it can come down.

Any thoughts?

Anyone else see this?

I have an Ultimaker 2+ extended.

Found another answer of @fieldOfView

If you can't see temp settings, your printer is likely using UltiGcode. When using UltiGcode, temperature settings are set on the printer, not in Cura. You can change the gcode flavor to Marlin in the Machine Settings for your printer, and gain full access of temperatures in Cura.

 

The "Enable prime blob" setting has been disabled for all printers.

    @peggyb What printer and G-code flavor are you using to see the "Enable Prime Blob"?

    all Ultimaker printers, looked it up in the machine settings and it uses 'Griffin'.

    If you want more technical information, ask, @ahoeben, I know how to use the software/printer but not the underlaying technical info.
