Perimeter shells are not connected

I am new to 3D printing, I am using a Prusa i3 mk3 printer and the perimeters of my prints are not bonded together. If I print something with a flat side I can literally peel the outer shell off, it is not boned to the inner shell at all.

I am new to this so it is probably a setting I don't understand but I would appreciate a pointer. I have calibrated the printer using online guides and it seems to print fine except for this issue. Any thoughts would be appreciated...

Re: Perimeter shells are not connected

If perimeters are not adhering to one another this usually indicates your machine is under-extruding. We have a great Print Quality Guide entry on this subject but please let me know if you have any other questions.
