Ultimaker Original leaning prints on heated bed

Recommended Posts

A couple months ago I installed the heated bed and right off, noticed the heated bed Z-cover squeaks as it is making contact with the back of the printer. I'm not 100% sure it is to blame for this, but I wanted to put that out there

It just started happening, my last two prints show the lean. Here's a photo of tonight's print, done in XT-CF20 carbon fiber filament. The angle is taken from the RIGHT side of the print...


And from a few months ago...


Any thoughts? I really hate the thought of taking the printer all apart again to repair the Z-Cap....if that's the culprit!
