Stringing and Oozing

Hairy print? If there are hairy strings of plastic on your print, which typically occur between two parts, this is called stringing. Other terms for this problem are oozing, hairy prints or whiskers. When the nozzle is moving to another location, it could happen that the fluent filament oozes/leaks out of the nozzle and produces the strings. In this case, check if the retraction is enabled, because in many cases you can solve this problem by optimizing the retraction settings. You may use a fine positive Features performance model, like the one from the make magazine. Download link: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:533472/#files
