Trying to picture this in my head…it really has to do with something pulling on the top of the Z assembly. For instance, let’s say I have the hose supported directly over the center of the bed well above the top of the Z assembly but it is attached to the top of the conduit pipe. When X/Y is moved from bed center to bed perimeter, the hose is now tugging the top of the Z assembly toward the center (albeit slightly) making the bit no longer square to the X/Y plane…and the fulcrum point has the potential to multiply the change at the bit.

Now I’m worried about my z motor control wires and my DW660 power cord doing the same thing!
