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.
