    You can always get the step file from the github and make it an STL, and print it with dissolvable supports (I don't think it would print well without them). If I remember, it's part 1962: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Ultimaker2Plus


    I don't think I've ever come across a ready to go printable one from anyone yet.

    Alrighty now...Thanks to the Lady Erin, I got the file and printed it out. Now, by the time I checked here, I had made my own. I am using it right now, but also printed the official version as a backup. But, after going through the process of making my own, well, I am going to definitely use it. The converted official version is on youmagine though.


    The design is now on youmagine and soon on thingiverse.


    Youmagine here:



    Many thanks Erin!!
