    Hello naiaborio!


    The bad infill and printing in the air may be caused by your print speeds for infill and outer/inner wall. 


    Try reducing the infill speed to 30-50mm/s and outer/inner wall speeds to 15-30mm/s.


    When you are describing that the printer starts printing in the air, is it due to a clog or filament in the nozzles way, or does the print slide off the bed? If it is one of those or both, try enabling retraction. then click “retract at layer change”. I will also recommend to enable “Z hop when retracted” and “Z hop only over printed parts”. Try setting z hop height to 0.4mm.


    If possible, can you let me know your current print speeds, material, layer height, and your printer model?


    Hope this helps, (sorry about the late response)


    Good luck!
