How do they work? I had thought about printing with Ninjaflex instead of paying for the magic that is Sorbothane. I had enough on-hand, though, so I never tried it.

They work OK. I printed the bottom of them with too high of an infill, so they're not as soft as I'd like. I also used Sainsmart TPU instead of Ninjaflex, so mine are a little more stiff than yours would be. Overall, they seem to work well. If you're going to try them out, I'd suggest what I did and print the top part that clips on to the wood frame with 100% infill so it's a little more stiff.

The Sorbothane hemispheres I had were flattening out and I had a couple of the plastic mounting parts break from moving the printer around, so I decided to try these out instead of buying more Sorbothane and printing new plastic parts. I'm sure they don't work anywhere close to as well as the Sorbothane, but so far they're not bad.
