Your starting layer height is slightly too high, maybe 0.1 or 0.2mm lower on the starting z offset. I think that helped set up the condition for the fillament loop that broke away from the main body. The rest of it is odd though. It still looks like inconsistent extrusion to me, but there might be something weird in the x/ y motion too. The weird gaps in the blue one could be caused by either x or y not following the g code path temporarily, maybe due to an overheating motor chip? That or something else is off mechanically or electrically. Do you have some video of it printing? Maybe one of us will see something.

I am having the same problem with my taz 6. The only thing that has fixed it is slowing down and pure hope.

Hmm... this says to me maybe you should tighten your belts?
