Paver in enclosure or other ways to silence printer futher.

I was wondering if anyone has tried to make the enclosure more quite.  The Enclosure itself quiets the printer a ton but I live in an apartment complex and am worried someone will complain.  Right now when I'm not home I turn off my heat in my apartment and throw a blanket over the enclosure.  It doesn't get above 26 celsius in the enclosure so I don't think it is a fire hazard.  I put it on stealth mode but still kinda loud.

I have it on an ikea Lack but even if it is on the ground directly it still is a bit loud.  I was thinking about getting some sort of foam or foam rubber pannels to put on the inside of the enclosure, maybe all 5 sides and leave the door side alone.  I was also thinking about getting a paver/foam and putting it in the case.  has anyone done this yet?  It looks like there might be enough vertical height in the enclosure if I put the filament on top of the case instead of in the case.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have used both a paver and a 450mm floor tile.  Both performed equally well.

In the enclosure?  Did you put anything beneath the floor tile like a foam pad?

I have used them both inside and outside of an enclosure and it reduced it with or without the enclosure.  I added adhesive cork or felt feet to the tiles or stone.  I have 15 printers so I used what I had on each.

Ah thanks, I thought I was being silly putting a paver, or a tile, in my enclosure.  I'll give it a try.

Did you remove anti-slip dampers, or did you put a paver on top of them?
