Electonics Messup

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I did something horrible when I was building my Ultimaker Original +...  At around 10 PM, I was trying to assemble the heated bed on the printer (which was a terrible idea), and I was supposed to plug some connectors into the bed.  I took the heated bed cable from the bag, looked at one side (without bothering looking at the other end) and pulled the plug off of the wires, thinking it was a cable protector, like a complete idiot.  Now, the wire is bare, and after trying to put the ends back into the cap multiple times, one of the wires is broken.  I know, it was a completely impetuous thing to do, and I was just being impatient and stupid when I did it.  Now I just need to know what I should do.  I went to Radioshack to try and get one of these, but they had nothing like what I needed.  Is there a part list I can see, or maybe a reference to somewhere I can get this specific part?  I'll attach a photo of the wires so you can see what I'm talking about.

Thanks,

-Brent

[EDIT: I decided to try and finish up some other wiring on the board while I waited for a reply, and the instructions call for 'jumpers'. After some research, I think I know what they are, but I can't find any in my kit. Is this something they removed from the kit, but not the instructions (like something in my previous post)?]

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
