The nozzle on the printer keeps dragging through the sample as it prints

Posted (edited) · The nozzle on the printer keeps dragging through the sample as it prints

Hi, 

 

I've been using a 3D printer to work with a cement mixture, and I've found that the printer has been dragging the nozzle through the layers as it prints which squashes and deforms the final product as shown by the photo attached which shows a cylinder being printed. I assume this is an issue caused by incorrect g code- is there anything that can be suggested to help remedy this? 
I have also attached the gcode.
 
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Thanks
