thanks for making this, I used 4 of them on my makerfarm prusa i3. hope it limits desk vibrations, going to test it soon.

unfortunately attaching these to the M8 threaded rods just made the whole printer jiggle alot. when i have time i might make a remix of this to use with the wood box frame edges

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.

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.

Cool. i had my printer hanging from the ceiling one time.. ;)

Nice for transport of the printer in cardboardbox..
add some more of your dampenerfeet in 90° angle.. to all sides.

I like the idea (and think it would work pretty well, especially for a prusa mendel), but it will cost quite a lot of filament with this design. Maybe it's better to use a more economical type of spring clip for packing.
