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)?]
