    I did notice that. The XXL LCD is also out of stock, I have a stock notice on that one.

    The official response from the new owner is that the American PEI went up last year sometime so they are looking for alternatives. I wouldn't cross your fingers for a Robo version.

    I've reached out to buildtak about 10x15 PEI and buildtak sheets being possible and will see what they say (Yes I'm aware 10x15 is larger than build area- but I hate seeing a random square on the bed :D)

    If your down and need it now (I've got a sheet that needs changed soon) you can get the Ultimaker S5 sheet from Buildtak (PEI or Buildtak) and trim down to size. Looks like they are about 30 bucks and need a few inches trimmed off the X axis.

    Hope that is helpful for now.

    Thanks Geof, I went with the one robo recommended off Amazon, and I do have the random square on the bed of PEI, which does bug me, and causes some homing weirdness if not placed exactly right.

    Very welcome,
    I'm in talks with Buildtak and Wham Bam Systems (flex plate option that is fair price) about the R1 series. Stay tuned!
