Hi guys. So I was trying to print something for my project this morning. I load a new gcode file on the thumb drive and load it into Ultimaker 3. Once it finished leveling and started to print, I noticed that it became dotted lines. I don't know how to describe it but I've attached pictures for you guys to take a look at. Did you guys ever encounter something like this before? If you have any idea on how to fix this, help a bro in need.

its probably because of an clogged nozzle or the filament is grinded down by the feeder. 

 

To check if you have a clogged nozzle, you can set the nozzletemp to 200°C for PLA and then push the filament manualy through the nozzle. 

To check if the filament is grinded down, unload the filament and look for spots that are grinded down. 

 

What material did you use and at what temperature/speed do you print?

I think the grinded filament is the cause. Do you know how to fix it? I used Ultimaker PLA (White) and printing at the speed of 70mm/s by the way.
