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.

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

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
