3D Printer; After plastic cools, begins to separate; what could be causing this? Answered

I just got a 3d printer and my first design came out fine; however, the plastic has a tendency to separate after it's been printed. I've tried preheating and angling the design in a different way; as well as playing with printing speeds and feeds.

Any thoughts on what could be causing it?

Do you have pics?

Is the plastic separating from the bed or from additional layers?
