XY Skew on new i3 mk3s+ build

Hi,

I've recently completed a kit build, overall a fun and enjoyable experience. Followed the instructions to a T with no missing or incorrectly placed part. Quality overall is good but I have noticed ~0.3mm skew (severe, according to this) between the left and right side of the bed and the back seems to be lower than the rest. I've compared sides with a ruler on the dashed bed frame, released the M3 screws attaching the rods to the frame and tried to reseat but there's still a bit of a skew. PINDA has no issues, no bumps or knocks or anything.

What else should I be looking at to resolve the skew? Of course, I could fix this via firmware, but I'd prefer to get this as perfectly square as possible first before compensating with software.

Sorry - I've put this in the wrong place. This should be under https://forum.prusa3d.com/forum/english-forum-original-prusa-i3-mk3s-mk3/

 

Doesn't look like I can move it, could a moderator possibly do this?
