    Could you please make a 5 second video demonstrating the problem?  You can push the print head around by hand.


    You should get in touch with your reseller.  The company that sold you the printer.  Tell them you are good with glue.  Try to find a solution that doesn't involve shipping the whole printer as the shipping services can bend your entire printer into a parallelogram so anytime you ship a printer it is at great risk.


    But if you insist, then shipping the whole printer is usually an option.

        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.
