Help! My S3 is not leveling the middle bed properly

Posted · Help! My S3 is not leveling the middle bed properly

Hello,

 

My new S3 seems to be having trouble leveling. The problem is that he doesn't level properly in the middle but he does on the outside. As can be seen in the pictures, he draws a line from right to left at the level of the middle of the Y-axis. I now suspect that the printer is faulty because it also makes strange noises and maybe the axis is bent.

I'm not new to 3D printers. Nevertheless, I need help here, whether it is a hardware problem, since the printer is brand new.

 

I am very surprised that you buy a 3D printer in 2022 and you get one from 2020 that is still defective.

 

With an Ultimaker, I expect that I don't necessarily have to deal with printers. At the moment my China printers print much better than the Ultimaker S3.

 

I tried:

- Nozzle exchanged

-manually leveled several times

- cleaned and greased

-Bed screws various settings tested

-Glass plate checked

-Printer aligned with water level

 

Thanks in advance for the help

    The second to last picture seems to show that your glass is lower there.  Is it possible that there is a chip of glass missing?

     

    Try flipping the glass over.  But you will definitely need some kind of glass coating on the other side.  I recommend glue stick and then spread the glue around with a wet tissue.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.
