What is preventing you from raising the last corner 0.5mm? Is the screw running out of threads? If that's the case, have you tried tightening every other corner a little bit more?

    How are you leveling it? are you using piece of paper to gauge the nozzle height? are you making sure that at one of the bed screws is raised above the bed to prevent fouling and are setting that one last? are you checking that the bed is free to float on the springs and is not binding/fouling? are you going around the bed at least twice as any adjustment on one screw affects the setting on every corner. without being there to see ,its difficult to know for sure.

    hi, i have prolems with levelling print bed i leveld three corners but de four is about 0,5mm lower.

    i have a 4mm glas plate on my heatbed so that is flat.

    can somebody help me?

    I had a similar problem, the (wooden) bed was a little warped, so one (front) side was lower.

    Because of this, the tension of the spring at this lowest corner was minimal compared to the other corners.

    To solve this, I added 2 washers between the spring / Plexiglas printing bed, so the spring gets more compressed.

    Now there is more spring-tension pushing against this corner of the bed, so it levels upwards.

    Hope this solves your problem.

    you can also globally bring all 4 screws down by 4-6-8 turns (2-4mm) to regain some spring tension, and then also lower tee z end switch. or if you have short and flimsy bed springs, replace them with better and stronger and longer ones.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
