Observation

On long drives or even just on a short trip to the supermarket, comfort inside the car is essential and one of the most important factors in vehicle design. The car suspension/wheel dampers assure a ride without big vibrations, but what about smaller and medium vibrations?

Conclusion

There is a need for a solution that can eliminate small to medium vibrations inside the car in order to make the journey truly smooth. The existing solutions with springs and air cushions are too expensive and complicated to make. 3D printing technology is the answer.

Solution

3Damper is a 3D printed seat damper that absorbs small to medium vibrations, enhancing passenger experience by offering a truly smooth ride. There are no complicated parts or the need for labor-intensive assembly, it's just ONE single 3D printed structure with elastic properties.
