Improve Print Quality - Remove Stripes and Gaps

Recommended Posts

Posted · Improve Print Quality - Remove Stripes and Gaps

I'm printing a hollow object, but a I get slightly stripy prints and around the edges there are some small gaps. Also I see some small blobs in places. Please see photos. What could be causing this. I'm using the Ultimaker2+

I'm assuming its an under extrusion problem. I'm experimenting with lower print speed. Also might increase temperature slightly.
