We'd love to hear from you if the print was successful.
Ultimaker Original (or Plus) feeder damper
Easily decouple your original feeder from the housing. Huge benefit in noise reduction without sacrificing functionality and puts on less than 15mm to the depth of your machine.3D printer parts and enhancements

I use this on my new Ultimaker Original Plus, to significantly reduce noise level of the machine.
You might also want to print some feet as well, while you have the flex material loaded anyway. Like Daids: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker-noise-reduction-feet or whichever you like best.
Settings to start with:
I used clear Ninjaflex on UMO+
Nozzle temp. 242°C
Bed temp. 50°C
Print speed 25 mm/s (constant for everything incl. infill)
Gap speed 250 mm/s
Layer hight 0.15 mm
Wall thickness 1 mm (top, bottom, sides)
Print one at a time, no need for additional plattform adhesion, or support.
The feeder damper should be oriented 'feeder side' (flat side) down. The inner back wall is slightly angled to print nicely without support.
Put the zip-ties in a loop through the rectangular holes of the pegs and through the middle wall. For dual extruder setup / back left extruder slot, use only the top row to fasten. Otherwise you will interfere with the Z-endstop switch!
Best regards Frederik
Happy printing everyone!

Thank you for your comment @rowiac :)
Wishing you a lot of pleasantly quiter printing!
This just made me realise, that my printer turns 3 this year. Telling me that one printer year somehow converts to about seven human years, as 'Stitch' has grown through its awkward adolescent phase a while ago. So here's to you Stitch: Being allowed to legally drink in the US in a bit. (Not that it really matters, being dutch residing in Germany)
Kind regards and happy printing,
- Printed on:
- Ultimaker - Ultimaker Original
- This part worked great using Taulman PCTPE filament. I used 0% in-fill with this material to make it more flexible.
