Aries 3D and Stillpoint Ultra 5

Aries 3D and Stillpoint Ultra 5

Postby miner » Thu Mar 18, 2021 6:00 pm

Curious if any Aries 3D owners have tried the Stillpoints Ultra 5 footers in place of the Classic footers? I am contemplating the change due to an offer for a set of four at a great price. This will be sitting upon an HRS M3X2 base. Will I need any footers for the motor? I have done a search but way too many topics were filtered by "Stillpoints". Currently the Classic feet (with Symposium inserts) are about 2.125" in height. Thanks in advance for any replies.

I used Stillpoints Ultra 5’s on my HRX with good results. There’s a picture of my table with U5 installed somewhere on the forum. I would recommend that you use the Ultra base with 5’s. This will allow you to level the table and then use the Ultra base to lock the threads against the bottom plinth ( similar to a lock nut), plus it will give you the added height to match your current footers.

The Ultra 5’s have since been replaced by the VPI pneumatic air suspension feet.
