Silicone Spacers vs. Solid Spacers vs. Springs:
These silicone spacers while being harder than standard springs will still give squash to give you the exact clearance you need, similar to how your current springs work. With solid spacers you have no play and are required to shim the corners. Shimming each corner becomes a tedious process when you’re trying to achieve such small increments of adjustment. As most hobbyist 3d printer bed carriages and heated platforms aren’t exactly flat, having the same amounts of adjustment silicone provides will help you achieve a level printing surface. Silicone will also benefit your printer by increasing the rigidity of the bed to the z bed plate. Silicone has a larger surface which is in contact to both sides compared to springs making it increasingly more stable.
