Bed level problems

Recommended Posts

I have an Ultimaker 2+ and have been running it for a couple of years now. Recently, the front left side of the bed will no longer level properly. When I run the leveling process, I can not get the front left to reach the extruder. I can make it lower, but not raise any longer. Has the screw worn out or is the bed warped now? Can anyone walk me through getting this fixed?

Have you tried lowering the other two screws? Then you should have more effective "travel" on the front-left.

It could be that the front-left spring is starting to loose its springiness. You can test this by switching the front-left spring with the front-right spring.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
