your x rods maybe bent. Try rotating them 180 degrees to see if the problem reverses.

 

The rods that the extruder slides on? They seem locked down tight, how do you loosen them to rotate?

    Yes. They un-clip out of the black ends. Just hold the end close to the black bit and lift it up. its quite firm.

     

    You sir are a fine human being and a friend to all. I gave them both a 90° twist and it is vastly improved. Thank you very much.

    That's great. Glad to help.

    You may need to make sure the lines are straight. If not you may need new rods.

    If its a new'ish machine then contact your re-seller as they may help as it maybe under warranty.

    Yeah, I realized by turning the rods I probably just moved the flaw from Z to Y, but I'm running some test prints to confirm. Thanks again.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
