First Layer Cal one side higher than other

I know there are some videos on the first layer calibration but none seem to have the issue I’m having.

when the First Layer Cal. Starts, the beginning of the line of PLA Fil. (Left Hand side of the plate) comes out just fine. I can get it to the almost perfect height, but then I noticed the right side of the place, the material was coming out almost completely flat... it’s almost as the Y Axis plate is not level. But when doing the XYZ Cal, it states everything is properly perpendicular and good to go. 


Has anyone else ever experienced this issue ?

I have looked under the plate to make sure there wasn’t any loose debris or material hidden under there, it was completely clear.

when I get a chance I’ll upload an image of what I’m talking about but if any of you have an idea of what could be going wrong please help! I’m fairly new to printing and just got the printer together last week. 

The first initial prints last week were perfectly fine, even got myself a mini Groot. 

But when trying to print the Prusa gear bearing part, I noticed it would always catch on the right hand side of the part and figured it was my PINDA probe and I adjusted it and recalibrated it and ever since it won’t do right. 


Sorry for the long explanation..


thank you in advance

Are you using 3.7.0 and selecting the 7x7 mesh for calibration?

Hey ! I meant to update this!! It’s been solved!

I was originally at the 3.5.1 firmware and upgraded to the 3.7.0 and I didn’t have to do anything aside from that other than Z Calibration. 


So now it’s all good!
