Epic Fail, What the heck happened?

I printed the famous Enterprise (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:133752), half scale of the original STL to fit in about 4 hours of printing with a 0.4 nozzle. Simple PLA from Ultimaker was used. This is the result:

.STL for 0.4 nozzle, normal settings for PLA: http://www.filedropper.com/enterprisehalfscale

What the HECK happened? I can see heavy warping, pitting, blogging, stringing, delayering, missing area's, and the list goes on. First time i have a print that fails like that (a part from the odd print that ends up in spaghetti).

I printed something the day before, it worked out ok (for some reason was a bit of pitting/blobbing and some thick stringing). Before that, my prints were excellent.

    I don't have time right now to check your gcode file - dinner is ready - but ALL the problems shown in your photo will probably go away if you cut the speed by 1/3. I'm familiar with all those issues in that photo.

    I'll give it a try, i was printing slower than normal (like i always do, parts come out nicer). This time... not so much!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
