Is your glass plate uneven.

Recommended Posts

Hiya all,

I was wondering if any one elses build plate is impossible to level properly.

I have tried for 2 hours to get it level but on mine the back left corner is too high.

I have tried to get it lower but by doing so other corners are then too low.

I tried the proper way but when the 3 points for height adjustment are correct with the calibration card, I then travel the nozzle to the back corners and they are way off. back left has the nozzle firmly planted on the build plate the right back being too much gap.

the heat plate is bowed in the middle so it's not pushing into the build plate but away from it.

I used one of the rods of the machine as a level and checked the glass and it's definitely not flat. I checked the rod against the glass by rotating it just in case the rod was bent but that isn't the case.

has any one got any ideas, solutions etc...?

many thanks

Rebekah Anderson
