Glass plate clips

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

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
