    New to printing and lately have had problems with extra strands showing up on the print.

    Use the Robo R1 Plus with no mods
    Meltink Blue Glow Filament from Amazon
    nozzle temp 210

    Is the temp to high? Any suggestions would help.

    Thanks in advance

    That is a rather odd one.
    You might be a bit hot so testing that is a good idea, but that is not normal symptoms for "too hot".

    If it is only happening with that one spool I would sanity check your settings (by doing test prints) and see if you can find the best ones for that spool. It could also be retraction related... like I said, and odd one.

    I agree, knock the heat down and test a few heat settings.
    I found 190C to be a great start with my printer. I'm using PLA, I searched and Blue Glow comes in both PLA and ABS, not sure which you are using.

    personally I would go hotter. Those are each end of layer strings as it moves to the next location repeatedly layer after layer. Hotter may snap it on lift and retract....cooler may let it stretch.

    Also changing the orientation on the bed (rotate it 90 degrees) can help with some of them...mainly the ends
