I'm using PLA and my setting are below.

Layer Height = 0.2mm

Shell thickness = 0.8mm

Bottom thickness = 0.4mm

Fill Density = 100%

Infill overlay = 20%

Print speed = 70mm/s

Kindly help. thanks.

That sounds like 'underextrusion'. Basically you might need to use higher temp.

Anyhow knowing what causes it, and there's a gazillion different thinks that can cause this, from the settings to the machine itself. You need give much more details.

- Temp

- Full range of settings

- Machine and model used

- Lifetime of the machine?. Did it print like this before?, it's this the first print?, it's a complex model?

More data much more data. And specially a photo of the print.
