Strangest print failure ever

So am working on a unique silicone mold on the GF today as I need to make an incredibly thin (0.5mm) fenestrated sheet of silicone, so I engraved a mold as below in Draft Board. (the circles are proud by 0.49mm (what luck!)

After the 3 hour engrave finished I realized I had forgotten to engrave an edge (so the silicone can flow off the edges). So figured I would 3Dprint a frame in PLA on my Taz6. I was sitting in Grand Rounds at the hospital and figured I’d kick off the print. I discovered my copy of Cura wouldn’t run after the last OSX update, so downloaded the latest version, and added this onto the bed and sliced and sent it via octoprint to start printing in my lab (so it would be done by the end of the lecture)

So man was I shocked when I returned to the lab and saw this on the bed (the Lulzbot rocktopus). That is the weirdest print fail I’ve ever had… (that is matte fiber proto-pasta HTPLA btw)
