Hmm. The G+ link seems to have gone dead. Anyhow, the gist of the conversation was this: These isolators will minimize Z wobble artifacts, but in doing so, introduce another smaller effect. The wobbling screw causes these to turn the nut slightly, raising or lowering the Z axis slightly. So, these don't get rid of Z wobble, they reduce it to be invisible under whatever else the printer has going on. If you are pursuing the highest print quality, you have to properly isolate Z from the screws: more complex isolation that doesn't turn the nuts, straight screws, more rigid guidance, whatever your machine needs.

Simply and perfect. Work very well on my chinese Prusa i3

Easy...if you don't happen to have access to SolidWorks.
