Does ultimaker vibration upset the print ?

Just a quick question, when i have ultimaker running fast, there is a lot of vibration ?

does that really effect a print and also, do these printed feet off thingiverse actually help the matter ?

if vibration does effect prints, what would be the best counter measure ?

Thanks guys.

Best wishes.

Ian :D

There are 2 reasons why I've added feet to my printer. First is to get a bit more room beneath the printer (with my modifications it's already a wire mess, and it's going to get worse)

Second is to reduce the amount of vibrations transferred to the table, to reduce the amount of noise. I used the soft PLA for this.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
