Most probably any UM reseller has them. Drop a mail to the one closest to you.

The clips are the single worst feature of the Ultimakers.

 

I can see there are better options possible, but I like the simplicity of the clips.... but you mainly make me wonder what you consider the worst Ultimaker feature?

Thanks guys!

they're much nicer than using bulldog clips, they're simple and work...

worst feature would have to be having three levelling screws not four

Four leveling screws makes no sense - you always have at least two of them that are fighting each other. Three points define a flat plane, four points are the corners of a 3D prism, i.e. not flat.

Whut he said.....8)

I especially like that the active leveling uses a 90° angle to test against the main 3 screw points used to manually level. Kinda like having a second set of measurements.

I could not find the language for the definition provided...this is spot on.<3
