Vibration Isolator v2 by lazzymonk Mar 5, 2013

Description

Version 3 now available. thingiverse.com/thing:91720 much easier to put together.

Almost as effective as my first vibration isolator but is fully printable and does not require any extra parts.

It reduces noise every effectively

I have print these in both ABS and PLA. They both work well.
ABS works slightly better as it is softer but is not able to support as much weight as PLA.

Okay after I keep failing on this one I give up.

The bridges work nicely, but each time in the back of the holes there are some lines that sagg down and make it impossible to insert anything. I can't get in deep enough and cut everything away so I will just keep my printer on the table.

This is an awesome addition to my Prusa. It has almost completely silenced it. Which mean I can leave it printing guilt free overnight. My wife always complains that it will wake up the kids and that it keeps her awake. Now she cant' hear it so more printing time in the day (and night). Thanks

Awww!! It's so hard to fit the springs into the plates..so I ended up gluing them. They did reduce the noises and vibrations :)

What material do you recommend-- PLA or ABS?

lazzymonk on Apr 28, 2013 said:

works well with PLA, have not tried ABS

Works great so far :) Kinda tough to get the springs in all the way, but they absorb a ton of vibration. My mendel is wiggling all over the place now instead of shaking the whole table and making noise...

I printed the first set at .25 and the springs were to thin. They printed nicely at .4. The printer is pretty quiet now. Nice work.
