is there a known issue about the outer shell?

Every piece i print looks like this:


It looks like the object is printet without an outer shell...

Is there some workaround or a option i have overseen?

    This looks more like massive and constant underextrusion than it does a Cura problem.

    It looks like the first few layers are fine, but starts to under extrude for the subsequent layers. Watch the extruder to see if it's grinding down the filament after the first few layers.

    sorry for the wait.

    Seems right to be an extrusion problem. Had time to make a few tests.

    Sometimes the filament stuck and is not properly transportet by the extrusion-motor.

    I had to lower the printingspeed to minimize the grinding of the filament how Valcrow advised.

    Printer is a Prusa Mendel

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
