Uneven PLA extrusion

That's severe underextrusion. Maybe 30% of what you need (one third).

I'm thinking you might be printing too cold or too fast. Here are recommended speeds for .2mm layers. If you are printing .1mm you can print twice as fast and so on:

20mm/sec at 200C

30mm/sec at 210C

40mm/sec at 225C

50mm/sec at 240C

If you don't know your printing temp or your printing speed, get out of Cura quickprint mode to find speed. And go into TUNE menu while printing to get temperature.

Indeed, that is way way too fast.

Also, why are you turning the bed heat off part way through the print? If you do that you can actually have the parts pop off the bed before the print is done which would ruin the print most likely.
