I confess. I too have seen a small shift in our oldest 2000 (P017). It usually occurs somewhere around 9 or 10 inches into a build... nothing definitive and I've never paid enough attention to try to isolate the problem. I guess we better take notes on a few parameters such as Z location and maybe clock time into the build (approx) where this is occuring. Maybe we can find something in common.

I've already told you more than I know.
