    Mine has an issue and getting to speak to someone at Robo has become quite difficult.

    thank you Waldo. When you say touch up, are the dimensions OK for the R2, or must it be changed in some way ?

    I am fairly certain the dimensions are right for the R2, I will let Bud speak to what exactly he means in terms of touch-up :)

    It is not an exact copy, it won't snap to the old parts, so you have to print two at a time. They screw together. The dimensions are accurate.

    @WheresWaldo any suggestion for the screw size and length ? I guess I could just to to ace with the pieces but just curious if you remember off the top of your head.

    thanks, Just placed my order. As an aside, I saw that @robert trama had the same issue I did. Robo may start to see more of these failing as the plastic becomes brittle in the small clip section

    Thank you again Waldo. It’s working nicely. It isn’t the $8 shipping Robo wanted for the $1 part, it’s more about being able to find a community like this one that helps improve the design. The original part’s clips are its weakest link. When I asked Robo for the STL they pointed me back to your design.

    Glad it is working for you. Funny how they pointed back to my model. Now if they would only take my advise and abandon modifications to Marlin to focus on improving RoboOS, ;).

    I actually printed a few extra. I used PLA and for some unknown and odd reason, I experienced warping on one of the two halves, no matter how I oriented the halves. I just printed more than I needed and all was OK. It’s important to have these around because if one of the factory ones breaks, depending on how badly it is broken, you may not be able to print anything...

    I have learned from people like @WheresWaldo and @mark tomlinson that the one thing that should be done right away, print all the parts for your machine you can. saves you in the long run :D

    I still have a box-o-spares somewhere. A lot of parts I have donated to other folks who couldn't print their own so they were worth the cost of printing :) Once you get more than one printer it is less critical :D
