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...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
