Ultimaker 2+ printing "stripes" on the Z-Axis

Posted · Ultimaker 2+ printing "stripes" on the Z-Axis

I'm having issues with one of our Ultimaker 2+'s not fully printing a layer and laying down like stripes (almost support like). I've attached some photos since that's a lot easier to show.

What is causing this? Could it be a minor jam in the nozzle or like moisture in the filament?

This is heavy under extrusion... you can probably fix it by printing slower, warmer and maybe tightening the feeder.

      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.
