these are great. printed 95A TPU 10% gyroid infill, a little on the stiff side of ideal but just a hair. might reprint with thiner sides at some point, but they really are awesome. Had a little trouble getting mine to press in so I just took the end covers off and slid them in. nice work.

These feet are just awesome. They take so much vibration out of my shelf, it's crazy. I printed them with 95A TPU with 10% infill to get more flex out of them. :)

Never bought TPU. What shore do you use? I can get TPU with a shore index of 58, 75 or 85.

@DanAndersen, I will recommend you using a TPU a shore index of 75 or 85 for this application. (Higher the shore index, the easier it will be for your 3D printer to extrude.)

Thank you very much :-)

Mine did not come out as clean as some of the other makes. However fit well and raise the bed for better memory card slot access :-)

These are great and a perfect fit! I actually printed these in PLA, I just wanted to raise my printer off the desk to allow clearance for my fan in a rear enclosure that blows out the bottom.

Thank you for your design effort. Made these in TPU 20% infil as the TPU i have is pretty soft so a bit of structure gave it a good balance.

Printed these at 10% infill and they are just beautiful! Thanks for this STL!!

This is one of the best mods anybody can make for the Ender 3 (I'm using it on the Pro)!
The noise reduction is amazing - I got also rid of some very annoying vibrations that caused something to make VERY unpleasant noises :)
1) print a mod for the extruder to print TPU successfully
2) print these feet
3) get rid of the old hard rubber feet
4) slide the new ones on the printer
5) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGSKrC7dGcY

Any advice for printing this on the ender 3? My hot end gets clogged (about 20% height was printed perfectly and then my extruder started skipping steps). I'm printing at 30mm/s without retraction.

cheetah is the best flexible i found for the enders. I also run a seemecnc ezstruder. If you are trying ninja flex its just a pain in the ass.

Here's a timelapse of this on some TPU

Printed at 220/70 using some budget YIYO TPU.

Thanks for these, just what I was looking for. Made some for my Ender 3 Pro from PLA. Going to reuse the existing rubber feet on the bottom of them. Will give extra airflow for the fan underneath. :-)


10/10 Excelent! im using it right now and the noise reduction is tremendous

Awesome, glad it's helping the community.

These are amazing. Used 3D Solutech TPU at 30% infill. They were a bit hard to snap into the extrusions, but they glide through the extrusion once they're in. Absolutely flawless design. I also devised a method to completely eliminate unwanted frame movement in the Ender 3 by propping the front right corner up off the desk by a few mm, effectively shifting the printer's weight onto a 3 point system of these TPU feet. Let me know if you're interested.

Thanks for your feedback, will be awesome to see some pictures of how your method works, looking forward to your response!

Beautiful fit, made with TPU, came out a bit fuzzy but as you can see they cleaned up nicely.

Awesome, thanks for printing. Will highly appreciate if you can add a photo to Make section. Thanks in advance.

What type of filiment is recommended for this print?

Also 30% infill sounds like a lot

TPU is preferred for this application, because you can print them and just insert them without unscrewing anything. PLA/ABS may also be used with lower infills but you will have to unscrew the LCD and partially the electronics case to insert them.

these work great. I actually used zero infill and they are nice and soft but do hold the printer perfectly and I can no longer feel any vibration on my desk
