Good Morning guys

I have been working with a Prusa i3 for six months now had many issues but resolved most of them with the help of this site.
I have a persistent skew on the x axis, the skew is consistent.
I have tried every thing from, cooling the electronics, cleaning the smooth rods, making sure the belts are not slipping on the pullies, making sure the tension on the belts are correct, re aligning the y axis and nothing seems to make any difference.
I have been struggling with this for a while now, and don't seem to find any information that can diagnose my problem.
If somebody would be so kind as to assist me I would be grateful

I will also attach some images of the print

maybe check the verticals of the frame and z rod to see if they are level....

sorry for posting but to me it is a not good setup.

the print have been printed the way that is in the photo?

I am trying to say that the the z rods dont seem to be in 90 degrees with the bed . just take some measurements there and i think you 'll find ur problem.

did you have this issue from the beggining ? Before you setup the printer did you see if the z rods where smooth and there were no problems in the motion of the ignus bearings?

If this is the problem i think there is an easy fix. jus tlet us know about ur fix.
