Non square S5 printer

Hello Ultimaker community, 


I just recently realized that our S5 printer is not square on the X axis. Three weeks ago I spent time to readjust everything. Yesterday I did a quick look and found out that squaring was off again... Do you have any tricks to get a printer square ???

    There is a video showing how to play with the mechanicals. Assuming you followed that and loosened the gears, best guess is that you didn't get them tight enough when you finished the last adjustment. The other thought would be that you have a belt that is loose and slipping.
