Mux' universal dampener foot
by mux, published
In order to dampen higher frequency noise as well, add a little bit of PU insulation material (foam) under the foot as shown in the application image.
The combination of 4 of these feet and the insulation material made that I cannot hear the printer anymore behind a door. Airborne noise is already blocked pretty well by the door, but without the feet, the table it's standing on as well as my floor acted like a sound board. Other spring feet, like vector's feet (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:21855) didn't fit my printer.
The model is designed in CATIA, CATPart file can be downloaded and modified if you wish.

i posted a pic of the one i made. the problem came because the z-steppers on either side were too far from the feet and basically behaved as a teeter-totter when the x-carriage moved left & right. either way, great design, i had fun making them.
Ah, then your printer has a heavier/faster accelerating platform than this was designed for. This is what the mounting hole(s) are for, you can screw it down to whatever the printer is standing on.
