    I'm pretty sure you simply need to enable retraction. It's a checkbox in basic settings.

    Also keep in mind that the slower you print, the better the quality (although the rest of the surface looks pretty good). So 30mm/sec looks much better than 60mm/sec and 20mm/sec looks even better. This is a constant tradeoff between quality and speed.

    But these strings I'm pretty sure will go away if you enable retraction.
