    Hi, my Robo 3D is the first model from kickstarter and i have a quick question, on side of my bed is higher than the other, do exist a screw to adjust this?

    I made the attached image to try to explain better, the side A is higher and i need put the side B of the bed at the same level than side A.

    Thanks in advanced!

    best regards!

    If that is an actual "beta" (2013 early 2014) then the leveling is done by adjusting the bolts that pass through the drawer slide rails.

    Pictures of the rails will help identify the exact model.

    Yep, that is a beta :)

    Here is my solution (well, not "mine" I did not do the model, but I use it): These are spring-loaded bolts that make it easy to raise/lower a corner of the bed. There are diagrams of how to mount them on the thingiverse link as well. I mounted mine with the screw head at the top rather than the bottom which makes it easy to adjust them.

    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:125626

    You use this to replace the screws that mount the bed to the rails. Then you can adjust each corner (by adjusting the screws in or out) to help level the bed. Works like a champ.

    @tesseract (who DID the model) is one of the original beta owners and predates even me :) He has since moved on, but he had a LOT of really valuable assistance back in the day and these are a good example. Simple and yet they do a great job. I learned a lot (if not most all) of what I did with the betas from him

    You can see the bolts in some of your pictures :) They go from the bed down through the top of the drawer rail slide bar.
    Here is one circled in red
