Cheap way to make it a LITTLE quieter...

Postby LePaul » December 5th, 2016, 9:59 am

With two printers on one table, I was noticing how the UMO really shakes, rattles and rolls

That might be good for Elvis music, not so much for the prints or neighboring printer :)

I happened to have some rubber drawer liner that I planned to use inside the toolbox drawer for tools to rest on.

I cut a small piece, folded it in half and placed under each corner of the printer. I also did the same for the neighboring printer.

It seems to have helped some and is a pretty inexpensive tweak.

Daym! I had feet(gijs), but printing them in flexible is smart!
And that design looks nicer than Gijs' tbh. Then again Gijs used rubber bands to get it working, this design doesn't require that!
Do you have a link :D?

I'm using a set of foam cushions you can buy to stick onto sharp edges so your kids don't get hurt when they bump into them. Don't ask me how that is called properly in english :P
Cost me around 10$ and they fit the UMO corners perfectly. The foam density is very good to absorb vibrations. Has been in use for more than two years now...

/edit:
Here's a link to what I mean:

Best regards,
