I use an UM2. I am at my wits' end.

It started with warping but only at corners in the left/back quadrant. I adjusted and re-calibrated, I rotated my model to avoid that area and also chose one that had brims around the corners. Additionally, I loosened the spooled PLA to make sure the feeder wouldn't click. I'm not sure my measures were successful but now I observed something even weirder: one spot were underextrusion happens 5a33409ad3cad_Photo-2017-11-06-13-57-19_2017-11-0613-42-040100_2.thumb.jpg.9ef988ed3827ff0ac59a470a46fc7ade.jpg.

The surface is evenly cleaned, it doesn't look or feel different at that spot. How can this happen?

Check to see if your glass plate is flat. Take it out, put it on a flat surface and push down all each corner to see if it wobbles.

Holy cow! Occam's razor strikes again. I hadn't thought this is possible but apparently the most obvious is also the real reason: the surface on the side that is being printed on isn't flat.

Now what? Is this covered by warranty?
