Printer underground

Should i use a heavy hard plate or is it better to have a vibration absorbing underground ?

Like the shipping box absorbing material (foam)

My priority is for best quality by normal speed. Noise is not important to reduce.


I have a MK4 since september. Pretty happy !

I use these layers:

  1. Tin shelf
  2. Bonded foam crumb
  3. Anti-vibration mat under the washing machine
  4. Concrete tile
  5. Printer

Hi Pavel

Many thanks for your detail reply.Just to make sure i understand it correct.

The ground the printer is placed should be hard which is the Concrete tile. Quite heavy i gues, right ?

Seems to be quite enhanced.Thanks for the Fotos, it helps !

Have you tested before and after ?

Best regards
