A printing errors Ultimaker 2

Hi there!


I got a few not so beautiful printing errors on my Ultimaker 2.


As you can see in the pictures attached:

1. Layers underextrusion

2. Surfaces are not closed (also underextrusion?)

3. Outlines do not close with the surface


What can I do to solve this?

    That's unconsistent under extrusion to me, like a partially clogged nozzle or wrong settings (extrusion multiplier too low  or printing too fast or hot end temperature too low)


    Could you please indicate your settings and material used ?
