    Hi can you attach a photo of what your seeing. I assume you mean the bed leveling bolts but want to be sure

    I would check with https://partsbuilt.com/ as they have pretty much bought up all the inventory of parts that Robo had. Otherwise just measure up the length and get some from Amazon if you are in the US or CA. I am pretty sure it is an M3 (3 mm) bolt, and you can use any type of knurled nut.

    Even your local Ace Hardware, Lowes or Home Depot might have the bolts in their parts drawer. The springs are easily obtainable at Amazon (https://smile.amazon.com/s?k=3d+printer+bed+springs&ref=nb_sb_noss)

    Only one problem with that setup, the plastic frame has a recess for HEX bolts not SOCKET bolts, all the rest is good but if you use those you will need a way to keep them from spinning as you tighten or loosen the thumbscrews.

    I would get the kit they have on Partsbuilt, although I'm not sure why they don't sell that kit in a 4-pack. However, I had some trouble with my bed leveling screws not being long enough. I know it sounds odd, but it's true. I bought some longer M3 hex head bolts and also a set of M3 wing nuts. The reason is that I found my thumbscrews were loosening up sometimes and if I lock down the thumbscrews with the wing nuts, I avoid that problem altogether.

    These are what I bought:
    https://www.mcmaster.com/91287a026
    https://www.mcmaster.com/94543a320
    https://www.mcmaster.com/96115a420

    Note: If you use longer bolts, you will decrease your build volume a bit, where the maximum z-axis travel will be about 230-235mm.

    One other thing, the pictures of the bed you show are odd. Only because the bed support piece (with the big X in it, where the leveling bolts would go) doesn't look like mine and you have some button head bolts in the 4 corners of the bed. Not sure why those are there........

    Looks like intermittent flow to me, Try seasoning the nozzle.

    You mention earlier that you are using Cura 2.5. The latest version of Cura is 4.4.1 - it has many bug fixes and improvements over 2.5
