This happens from time to time. it mostly happens on the first layer after some infill.

Is this under extrusion? if so, what can I do to helt it? if not, what is it then?

The outher (and inner) surface looks good, there are no string, no deposits from oozing, I don't think there are any problems other than this, and it bothers me.

I had one time where the printer was printing in the air, this was due to a knot on the filament, but can this still course problems? because of the knot, the drive wheel was dirty, so I cleaned it, thus there should be no problem there.

The printer have (only) been running for a week, if that have anything to say..

Hi,

this doesn't look like under extrusion to me but rather the first "bottom" layer after some infill. If the photo depicts the finished object, then it is a huge problem. But if it is just printing one layer and then another few over that one, then it should be fine.

However it could be that the nozzle is a bit clogged. Check out this guide about the atomic method:

Had printing stopped when you took the photograph?

It just looks as though it had only printed a single layer for the top. What were the layer settings and top and bottom thickness?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
