While we were printing at normal speed we noticed that the desk on which our Replicator2 stands was shaking like 'crazy' when doing changes of directions.
Thats why we designed this kind of new 'shoes'(don't know how to call them) for the Replicator2 to reduce the vibrations.
After changing them with the standard 'shoes' the shaking is almost gone and as a nice side effect the Replicator2 is alot quiter like normal.
It's a simple upgrade and its worth it.
Just imagine your printer is making only half the noise like normal.
It should also improve your printing quality as well as reliability because your build plate wouldn't shake(vibrate) as much.


First step:Print 4 of them (for each leg one ) at medium settings with 10% infill.
Second step: Then stick on anti-slip pads / rubberpads or felt surface saver pad.
Third step: Use 8 M3 10mm screws to hold the shoes on the replicator while lifted up. (You may want to put something in between the screws and the replicator to not damage the coated surface)

Done :)
