First layer thicker on one side of the bed

Hi, first post here so apologies if this is in the wrong place. I've had a few successful prints from my MINI now, and some of them have been pretty large.

I've noticed that when running the first layer calibration tool, the filament is uneven, one side of the bed looks like the nozzle is too low, the middle is just right, and the other side is too high.

Is this a problem? Does it mean my bed is warped? - Is there a fix that I can do that will help the first layer go down evenly?

Thanks 🙂

Hello and welcome in the Prusaforum,

try to adjust the screws that attach the z axis to to the x and y axis. If they are too tight they can skew the z axis with respect to the x and y axis.

Then I would perform the complete calibration process again.
