Strange uneven pattern on the 1st layer

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure i've seen something similar on the forum (it was a picture with a camera that takes pictures of heated areas).

It almost looks like the build plate is not even at certain spots, or maybe it comes from the rods that are slighlty bent?

Can you try maybe to flip the build plate on the other side?

Thanks guys, will try to flip the glass although it is unlikely the source of the problem. It used to be good, except some slight tilt to the far-right corner, but this is how the printer originally came. More or less, all the sudden, there is this strange pattern. Most probably, it comes from the rods or the belts but at the moment, have no idea where to start looking at.
