Printing issue: too much plastic? too little? too hot? all of the above?

Hi there,

I have yet another printing problem. I got back to my printer after months of not touching it and I, again, have print quality problems. I am trying to print the following: [www.thingiverse.com]

But as you can see in the photos below, they turn out to be horrible to the extent that i dont even continue printing. The fill is at 25%.

It seems to be extruding too much plastic in corners, but then not enough for the fill? Then some layers don't seem to get attached properly? I am lost. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

I would say all of the above, you have also some mechanical problems too.

But first you need to give some more info:

Type of filament
Temperatures
Printing speed
Nozzle size
Slicer settings
Extruder type (direct or bowden)

Your first layer height is to big, looks like you are over extruding and way too hot for either the filament, the speed or the size of the part.
