Ultimaker 2 Extended - Glass bed clips

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 Extended - Glass bed clips

I've had my Ultimaker 2 Extended about 4 months now and it gets used a lot. It’s awesome, it’s great, but damn those metal clips that hold the glass plate in place stand out as something that looks cheap, is annoyingly sharp and really need to be changed!

Has anyone come across a drop in replacement for these? I understand it would have to be metal, but surely there is a better option made of less sharp or better quality material?

I’ve upgraded a few bits on my printer, but just cant find anything on these.

What I was going to do originally was coat them in a little Sugru, but would rather a better option than that.

Any ideas guys?

Not a solution, but as a workaround I usually use my Ultimaker screwdriver to open the clips.

Very easy to stick in there, and you don't feel a thing!

Well I do have some options that dont require me to use my hands :)

Can I purchase spare clips to have in case my Sugru solution ends up looking a bit rubbish?

Anyway, it’s not exactly a major problem, just something I was thinking about.

There was a little tool that somebody designed and posted on YouMagine, it wasn't to bad could be improved but worked
