On the A6 the X/Y-Axis can easily be skewed by just moving the front plate right/left.

Maybe the following helps to get an idea what's happening (haven't tried that by myself):

  • move the nozzle to the origin (home) and pull the bed towards you. The nozzle should run perfectly parallel to the bed's edge. If not: the bed is not mounted parallel to the y-axis. That's no problem for printing, but crucial for the next test.
  • If the bed's left edge is perfectly aligned with the y-axis, the front edge should be perfectly aligned with the x-axis. Move the nozzle along the front edge of the bed and see if they're parallel. If not: you have a skewing problem AND an easy way to re-test after trying any solution.
