Bed level problems


Recommended Posts

Posted · Bed level problems

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.
