My printer isn't perpandicular

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I've just recieved my Ultimaker 2, did the z calibration and made a first print.

Everything went fine until I noticed that my square wasn't a square but a parallelogram.

Searching about what could be wrong i found out that my whole printer was a parallelogram.

I can't find any sign of folding of the frame of the printer. It's like the frame pieces were cut like that.

What should I do?

Is it a manufacturing malfunction ou can i do somthing by myself?

Thank you!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
