I live in California, and am finding surprisingly limited sources for these. fbrc8 has them for $18 + $6 shipping, which seems a bit pricey for this one part. The only other alternative I've found is getting one shipped in from Europe or China. The price from China is more what I expected:

but is going to take 2 to 3 weeks. Will let you know if it's any good.

 

If anybody knows a good source for these, please let me know. I presume the UM2 one wouldn't work in a UMO+?

    Thanks for the info Erin! Sounds like $18 is just the cost of goods. I'm curious if I did something wrong with the shipping, though. It was something $6 or $7, which is why I cancelled. For something so small I guess I expected near postage price or free. Do i have this right?

    I can provide some more details on the shipping, but we ship everything FedEx so we can make sure to track it, insure, etc. I realize that might sound silly on something as small as a coupler, but we try and make sure people get the part they need right the first time. We used to split our shipping between UPS and the post office. Bad experiences with both brought us to FedEx; the FedEx hub is located here in Memphis, so we've had a really good shipping experience with them.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
