A remix of aeropic's A8 squash ball damper feet. I loved its low profile and simple design, but the feet kept coming off when moving my printer around due to the double sided tape I used. I created two holes that fit a 2040 extrusion spacing using M3 screws and t-nuts using Tinkercad.
While I made this in mind for my Ender 3 Pro, this should fit for any printer that uses a 2040 extrusion frame.
List of parts used:
- 2x Double Yellow Squash Balls
- 8x M3x8 screws
- 8x M3 nuts
- 8x M3 t-nuts
You can use any kind of filament you want for the feet! I used PETG since that's what I have loaded up right now.
A stronger filament than PLA is preferred for the t-nuts, but you can probably get away with PLA if you don't crank down too hard. YMMV though!
You might need to trim a little bit of plastic out of the holes if you can't thread a M3 screw through. I used an x-acto knife for that.
I used an x-acto knife to slowly cut the squash ball in half. Poke the blade through, and slowly work your way around.
