    I don't know for how long but I have noticed this with my prints. Squares and other orthogonal shapes are clearly not at 90 degrees angles. My initial thoughts were that it was an auto-leveling problem and that manually leveling it with shimming would work. Either that wasn't the solution or I just didn't do the prosses correctly. Normally this wouldn't bother me but I am working on a project that this problem interferes with. I included some pictures of a square I printed out a while ago up against a corner of a normal sheet of printing paper. I also see clearly that the initial wipe before every print isn't parallel with the edge of the bed (I included the imprint of the wipe as well). Is there any way of reducing this angle or fixing it completely?



    Any and all help would be appreciated.

    I didn't think of that, I'll test it out tomorrow and post what the outcome is.

    Worked! I used my old clips that came with the printer and quickly fixed it. I ran the wiping part of a print and it was straight. Thanks a ton now I can continue on my project :^)))

    Good luck, I personally have not touched kisslicer in a long time.
    Someone else may have experience with it.

    The gantry can easily become skewed if the bearings are not fully seated in the case recesses. That is likely why the prints are skewed.
