Weird inaccuracies in first print (MK3S Kit)

I just finished assembling the MK3S Kit and doing the calibration. During the first layer offset calibration there were some problems, more later.

I started the first print but stopped it after the first layer because it looked like this:

(both the same image, different background for better visibility)

Can somebody explain to me what is causing this? I don't know if the first layer offset is correct, but I think it is ok. During the calibration the line looked normal, but when it started printing the rectangular surface it was a bit inconsistent at times.

During printing the x axis motor sometimes slightly twitches. Could the file be corrupted or is there a mistake on my side? It was on the SD card that came with the LCD.

Sorry Leonard, 

My Crystal ball was not able to resolve your pictures... 

I Use Drag and drop, to put pictures into posts... 

Place your cursor where you would like the picture, in the text input window, then open file manager and drag te picture to the bottom of the text input window. My screen goes Blue, when the file is in the correct place


Also if you click   'Link to: Media File'  the pictures will open up full size when clicked

regards Joan

I try to make safe suggestions,You should understand the context and ensure you are happy that they are safe before attempting to apply my suggestions, what you do, is YOUR responsibility. Location Halifax UK...

@joantabb

Thanks, using drag and drop it worked. Before I uploaded the images to imgur and used Insert/edit image, but that didn't seem to work.

I found the solution to the problem.

In case anyone is having this issue too: Cheyk that all screws are properly tightened. I forgot to tighten the x axis pulley, which caused the x axis to be inaccurate.
