weird flawed outter layers on print

Posted · weird flawed outter layers on print

Hi there, I just printed a wolf and a lot of the layers as seen in the picture are weird20171113_163303.thumb.jpg.fd5de067b7efca25dc875b08eecccdaa.jpg and not connected. Has anyone else experienced this? if so, how can I fix it?

Thank you very much,

Arian p

    It's called underextrusion and happens if you print too cold (too viscous) or too fast (in volume not print head speed). It could be your printer is faulty or it could be you are above the expected max speed for your printer.

    What kind of printer is it?
