Teenage Engineering has responded to criticism about the high cost to buy and ship its collection of OP-1 accessories by letting customers ‘3D print’ their own parts:
We work hard to make our OP-1 users happy with free OS updates and added functionality. But sometimes we fail.
As some have noted, the shipping cost of the OP-1 accessories is very high. This is because we can’t find a good delivery service for small items.
Meanwhile, we have decided to put all CAD files of the parts in our library section for you to download. The files are provided in both STEP and STL format. Just download the files and 3D print as many as you want. Next fail is the OP-1 manual update. We are almost there…we promise it will be ready sometime next week. Thank you all for your patience, we promise to work even harder in the future to make you happy.

The parts are now available on Shapeways if you need to 3D Print replacement parts for your OP-1 synthesizer.
