While printing parts to be ready for DaVinci Days in Corvallis, I tried "Multilpy" on one part, and it did a great job... of showing how out of control the ooze is on my bot!

I have a Cupcake Ultimate, with MK5, and the "plus" heater. Everything is tuned amazingly well, printing raftlessly with no problems at all! Except ooze :-/

Pictures after the break!

Any ideas on how to combat this kind of ooze?

While watching the print, I noticed that the ooze is not from where the extruder leaves an area it was just printing, but from where it enters an area to be printed. There seems to be a moment where it doesn't ooze, then after about 2-5mm it oozes really badly, resulting in a mess of strings!
