    The stringing is due to the nozzle oozing slightly during the moves between each island. A tiny drip forms, and then wipes off when it gets back to the edge of the print. That's why the fronds gradually move away from the shell - the wipe happens on the edge of the previous layers wipe blob.

    Your settings look basically ok, and its a nice looking print apart from the ooze. I'd make the retractions a bit less enthusiastic - set a minimum travel distance of maybe 1mm, so you aren't retracting even for tiny infill moves. That's not relevant to the problem, but it will help speed the print up and avoid grinding. The other thing I'd do is turn off the z-hop setting. Z-moves are much slower than x-y and are probably slowing down the movement, allowing more time for the head to drip.

    Finally, check your retraction settings in the printer. I generally use 5.5mm at 35mm/s.

    tnx for help i use same retraction settings as you do i shall try turning of the z-hop and print again.

    one more question is there any option to stop that oozing i print with your pla bronze at 195C something like retraction to happen let say 0.5mm earlier so the oozing don't have time to appear.

    Jea i know but i am abit impatient that print is stil printing and it is 14h alredy.

    i shall try once more with 30mms and z-hop at 0 with temp abit lower.

    I shall paste the pic.

    Tnx for hellp!

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
