I was so happy with squash balls and this: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2172375

It dampend so much vibrations that overall sound was very low, i even did take concrete slab away, i feel that no need for that anymore.

Original thing worked fine, it was just a bit too high for my taste, so i made quick and ugly remix, it works :)

You can use different configurations, i tested that all balls was placed to inside of frame, it was too wobbly for my taste, so i moved rear legs to outside of frame and now it is stable again.

This should work any 3030 frame also.

Mounting hardware per feet:

  • M4x12 bolt
  • Washer
  • 3030 T-nut or sliding nut, you may find some thing here also.

Tested with single and two yellow dot balls.

Printer Brand:

You may play with settings and rotate model.
