How Do You Fix an Uneven Frame?

Posted · How Do You Fix an Uneven Frame?

Hello,

I have an Ultimaker 2+ that is uneven and I was wondering how to correct this issue. The front left corner is raised about 3mm. I've put the printer on a level plane just to make sure and it still about 3mm off the ground. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Has it been like this from the start or is it something that has happened suddenly?

    I can be difficult to fix. There's a small chance it could be fixed by loosening all the screws that hold the frame together, putting the printer on a known flat surface and then push down on the frame from the top with a lot of force and re-tightening the screws.

    I've tried that a couple of times on printers and it didn't work unfortunately. Worth the 10 minutes to try though, just in case. What fixed both of the crooked printers I had was replacing the top frame of the printer. Bit of a pain to do though. If the printer is brand new I would just get in contact with your reseller. Or, if it's not affecting print quality (which it probably isn't), just live with it.
