Inner and outer wall are not attached

Yes, photos would help a lot. Is it not touching all the way around, or just on certain areas? If its the former, then it's probably due to extruding just a little bit less than it should all the time. If it's just in certain areas, then it's probably a belt tension issue causing backlash, which means that the head stops short on some moves.

Also what slicer and version are you using?

I should get my camera back tonight, then I'll snap some pictures. In the meantime I'll try to explain how it looks.

I've had my Ultimaker only for a few days, so the belts are still very tight. But I do notice subtle signs of underextrusion on some parts of my print. I think this is also due to my filament thickness being just a little thinner then I specified in Cura. My digital calipers should arrive tomorrow or the day after, so I wouldn't be suprised if it's just a little bit thinner than 2.85 mm.....

I am looking at some of my previous prints... and I can see that on one side of the prints, lines are a little more 'tight' than the other side. I would really love to get some feedback on this because I'm so new to printing accuracy and stuff like that. I'll get pictures as soon as possible.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
