Is a level surface important for print quality?

Recommended Posts

I have just finished building my 'happy corner' - unfortunately due to many different factors and the odd geometry of my home, the surface my UMO+ sits on is not 100% level (when examined with a spirit level). Will this negatively affect print quality? Also, how would vibration affect print quality?

So far I have managed some very decent prints while the UM was sitting on my desk for assembly...unfortunately I need to resume my work there now and the UM has to move to its final position...
