is the machine brand new ?

i find that ultimaker2 sometimes needs to print a little hotter than standard 220 to get good print quality... try 240 for fun and see what happens..

if that doesn't help....it looks like under extrusion... then there could be 2 reasons for this... small parts of your black feeder on the back has broken and fed into the filament... and blocked up the flow... or you have the old white teflon part in the hotend and its warped... but that would only happen after a good bit of printing... not first prints...

if you do decided to have a closer look at your feeder box... be careful when unscrewing it !! or when you loosen the bolts.. it will fall down into the inside of your ultimaker.. not good...

im curious how old your machine is... and if the warmer printer just solves this...

    I've had my printer for a couple of months, the black feeder seems to be intact.

    How can i check whether i have the teflon part?

    I already had to unscrew the feeder once because the grippy thing wasn't attached tight enough, i'm printing at 240 atm, i'll let you know

    Update: no ugly layers in the print, altough there are some differant stripes, but i assume those are normal

        (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.
