UMS5 - Layers not alligned

Printing a part that should be fairly simple (?) for a 3D printer. Yet every print (most noticeable on straight walls) comes out with these uneven layer lines. This printer has been doing this since it was purchased and we've tried changing the surface the machine sits on (incase the table was too wobbly).The print bed is spring steel on a magnet adhered to the stock glass buildplate. Same issue occurs on the bare glass as well, over a variety of material types and brands. 

 

Any suggestions?

    Besides that: What happened to the brim in the left corner of the object? It looks like it's getting very thin there. Is the bed levelled correctly? Is the glas plate flat? The brim should have the same thickness all around the object.

    That is a common problem with the active bed leveling. Sometimes the brim prints perfectly fine, other times it comes out too thin in places. For example, I'm printing the same exact part now, one day after these pics were taken,  and the brim is perfectly fine. Not super happy with the consistency of this printer...

    I don't think I've ever had a single leveling failure (i.e. it appeared to be anything other then perfect) with my S5. I am always careful to remove the little nub left on the bed from the first touchdown, though.

    You have something that needs adjusting or fixing on your printer. Active leveling on the S5 is pretty bullet proof.
