Why not reach out to support if you feel this is unacceptable for a brand new printer?


That way they know there may be a problem somewhere.

I saw something similar.  I rechecked the the 3 screws that attached the Y an XZ axis assemblies and found that I had to be careful about the tightening of those screws.  These are steps 17, 18and 19.  Make sure that that mates surfaces are clean of dirt or debris.  It takes very little to cause a misalignment.  I found each time I disassembled, cleaned, reassembled and tightened I could easily affect the flatness.  Even changing the tightness of the screws had an effect.  The XYZ calibration corrects for most of this.  I also saw a change in flatness depending on the the heating of the build plate.

Just for the infos. I had a longer Chat with the Support. After trying all the things out the support decided to send me a new Y Axis with all the Parts. so the complete lower Part of the printer.

So case closed 🙂
