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!
