Potential Solutions:

  1. Place the printer on cork instead of a hard table
  2. Print at a higher temperature
  3. Increase the weight of the printer with 50lb dumbbells on the top
  4. Hang it from the ceiling using rope
  5. Print in a anti-gravity space
  6. Change the shape of the printer to a sphere that moves to accommodate the vibrations
  7. Glue shock-absorbing materials to the motors
  8. Print in a vacuum so that there is no resistance
  9. Print underwater
  10. Print on/with rubber
  11. Minimize resistance from the motors
  12. Print in humid climates
  13. Print in warm climates
  14. Print slowly
  15. Print at high altitudes
  16. Make the printer out of jello
  17. Glue the bolts into the printer
  18. Work with the esteps to make the printer extrude less so it doesn’t rub against itself
  19. Print with a smoother filament
  20. Use cement as opposed to acrylic as an outer shell
  21. Screw the printer into the table
  22. Add strings over it to hold down the top of the printer
  23. Tighten the belts
  24. Glue the printer to the workspace
  25. Surround the printer with pillows

1. Problem: Noise, mechanical vibrations.

2. Potential solutions include adding shock/vibration absorbing feet to the printer and adding sound insulating material around encasing the printer.

3. This could increase the cost and complexity of the printer, but there are materials that are low cost that could be substituted. We could also use a different material to build the printer frame.
