    Just lately my settings have gone a bit skewed.

    See the Pics..

    The outer layer is not sticking to the inner layer, the top and bottom layers are working ok.

    I have obvious tuned something different and went the wrong way with my settings but which ones, any help would be appreciate to get me back.. :confused:

    Anything to do with your new filament box, like too much tension on the filament or some coating on the surface of the filament?

    Nope, I know that it’s one of the setting in CURA, but as to which one precisely, and then knowing the correct setting, I haven’t got the foggiest, I don’t want to make matters worse by altering everything, it’s much like an Inkjet printer, just alter one thing at a time, baby steps, but there’s a lot more setting here than on an Inkjet.. :hu

    What material are you printing? I'm guessing ABS.
    Try using no fan at all. Set fan to 0% for the next part you print. also cover your machine enough such that the air temperature reaches 35C to 40C (but no hotter than 40C). These 2 things will help with your issue.
    If you are printing PLA then you probably have under-extrusion - try printing a little hotter and slower.

    Re: Possible under extrusion - if you've recently loaded a new reel of filament, you may want to recheck/calibrate your extrusion rate. Filaments can vary in actual diameter and result in inconsistent or under extrusion.
