Printer settings ?

Hi, 



Recently swapped materials from PETG to ABS on my left hotend, but have since had problems with what I would call layering (not sure of the terminology here). 


I'm running 0,15 mm layer height, and print speed 1500mm/min, the settings are the exact same from what I can see that use to work super. But now I don't seem to get even near the same quality prints as I used to. 


At first I thought it was the x-carriage belt that had come loose, but this has been checked and retighten without any change. 


I'm running the same sort of filament as I used to prior to the change. 


Any one got any ideas ?
