The PrintrBot LC can be loud and shaky...this does a great job of reducing both of those. It could be even better with a little double-sided foam tape between the footing and the damper, but so far they haven't moved and the concept is a success.


Sketchup file added, to help any remakes.

I decided to get sticky-backed velcro, and cut small pieces to keep the feet in place. They never did come completely out, even after a lot of printing, but why take the chance. Soft velcro on the dampener side...hooks on the printer's feet (if it matters).


Really, this is pretty basic. The only additional suggestion I have is to squeeze it down once or twice after printing to ensure you've got good flex.

Works great! Makes the printer significantly quieter.

Does it really works if printed with abs?

Probably even better, due to flexibility.
