So I did a completely new version of PrintrShock.
After alot of testing and prototyping I have finally a design that is really good!
What is PrintrShock?
It's simply feet for your printer with springs to absorb the vibrations from fast moves and sudden turns from the printer.
It's not made to make your printer stand still.. its made to make your printer move :)
And why is that you ask!.. Noice reduction.. I could hear my printer trough walls before.. but only the soft thumping from when it change directions.. thet noice is completley gone now :)
All I can hear is the stepper motor song :) oh.. and my Power supply fan.. PrintShock cant delete the fan noice..:P
What printer do they fit?
Any printer! Its very easy on my Printrbot cause of the complete body. But if you have like a Prusa or something that isnt really happy with moving around.. just place it on a thin plate and add PrintrShock 2 universal under the plate :)
How do I place them?
First, there are 2 files.
One file has a round base and the other has not.. that's the only difference.
Each foot needs two pieces. I used The one with the round base under and the smaller on top but that's up to each and everyone to decide how they want :)
A PrintrShock needs 4 springs, 1 heavy in the middle that holds the weight and 3 small to stabilize the foot itself. More info on this below.
If you look at the shape, there are 3 arms.
2 of the arms ar in an angle of 90 degrees and the third is 135 degrees from the other two.
That single arm is going under the printer. That's the direction you should use of the feets.
The heavy spring is to be placed directly under the outer corners.
.STEP files on springs that fits uploaded.. for easy measuring when shopping for springs..
Or maybe print the spings ;)

This is the evolosion of PrintrShock. The two half great and the masterpiece ;)
