Prime The Extruder At The Beginning Most extruders have a foul habit of leaking plastic once they are sitting idle at a warm temperature. the recent plastic within the nozzle tends to ooze out from tip, that creates a void within the nozzle wherever the plastic has drained out. This idle oozing will occur at the start of a print after you pre-heat the extruder, and additionally at the end  of the print the extruder is slowly cooling down.
