So you are getting a line across your model where the red line shows, is that the problem?

This is probably caused by the print head moving through over extruded plastic often causing scaring.

If you are saying the problem is blobs or zits on the outside walls this could be a retraction issue.

Without seeing the actual print it's hard to know.

This almost certainly going to be either an over extrusion or z height issue. More likely over extrusion, trying tweaking your extrusion multiplier.

Have a read here:

Unless the scar is going up your print on the z axis? That could be start position over extrusion/retraction. Set it to start at random points to try and help.
