Electonics Messup

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.



[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)?]

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
