Prints not sticking to back corners of the buildplate

Posted · Prints not sticking to back corners of the buildplate

Hi guys

I have an UM2, and mostly i do large prints.

But lately I have been doing lots of small prints and multiples of the same item. I have noticed that my prints in the back corners always lift off the bed and sticks to the nozzle or moves around with the printhead.

Have leveled the bed again multiple times, but still not having much luck.

Have an Olsson Block but still using the factory print head.

Has anyone got any suggestions on how to go abouts fixing this?

Cheers

Hi,

and welcome to the forums.

Take out the glass plate and put it on a flat surface. Then tap on lightly with your finger on all four corners in order to find out if it is completely flat.

Also, have you cleaned the bed recently? Build up of glue, or grease/oil from your hands or the printhead shafts could contribute to adhesion issues.

So we have come to the conclusion that my bed isn't level and I cant get it to level. Have tried over a dozen times now. Check out the image below:

Its getting really frustrating now, I cant find a solution anywhere. Looks like not many have had this issue
