This bracket is designed to hold down and stabilize the printer frame. Print four, one to hold down each end of the threaded rods as shown in photo. Put a small piece of duct tape on the inside of the bracket to provide a tighter grip against the threaded rods.

Based on a comment from one of the makes, I added a version for the Anet A6, which is 3mm taller. Since I do not have an A6 to test it, please leave feedback if you print this.

Had them mounted for almost 8 months, but they started breaking.
Printed at 35% infill in PLA, sliced using Cura.

Very good upgrade, I mounted to a rather heavy wooden board. 18 mm. Beneath this board I did mount rubber AV mounts. Now all the vibrations stays in the printer. This result in a better printing. The rubber mounts are normal standard buffers, diameter 25 mm, height 18 mm, with M6 bolt at one side. Perfect.

Best upgrade yet, thanks for posting this.
I mounted my printer to a piece of 3/4" particle board I had in my workshop and the printer runs nearly silent and the quality of the prints is amazing.

Bracket for Anet A6 should be 1mm lower, than it will be perfect.

Thanks, I'll upload a modified version.
