For my graduation research I am looking for a way to design a 3D printed structure that provides sufficient damping in order to protect the electronics inside. The whole structure has to survive a drop from over 10 meters high without permanent deformation. Does anyone have experience with such a design?

I know there are elastoplastics but I want to explore all my options (f.e. concerning wall thickness) and also I hope to get some input on different designs that provide damping (f.e. honeycomb-like structures)

Is the energy going to be absorbed for on fall,or is it constant vibration you are looking to damp.

The energy needs to be absorbed on fall, constant vibration is minimal.

With multi material printing you can make an enclosure that is separated by a rubber like material (damper) and a harder plastic sandwiching the rubber material but connecting through the rubber material at various points (spring).
