@nzo - i'm glad to hear that the feet do their job, thanks for your compliment. I have the UM2+ too, and i know that the gaps are rather narrow, but in my case they are just as they should be, the feet won't fell off. Your solution with the heater gun is great, thanks for sharing, i'm sure it will help someone other.

Hi Pascal,

These are superb feet for my UM2+ - thank you so much for designing them and making the models available. The anti-vibration quality of the squash balls works extremely well.

I had a small problem with the smaller "tongue" at the top of the damper feet . The gap was a little too narrow and the feet would not slide on my printer base. I used a heat gun to soften the PLA and this solved it :)

Maybe the UM 2 and the UM2+ have different enclosure wall thicknesses.

Best wishes and appreciation!
