i feel like this would affect the print quality quite a bit since the printer would be basically moving up, down, left, right

Vibration ? What vibration ???? You guys are really amusing.

Nice job! Just printed a set of these in ABS. I can confirm that these are quieter than Hofftari's dampers (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1707045). Might have to play around a bit with the tension on the bands to keep the printer from dancing too much though.

I'm thinking that lacing flex filament back and forth might make the stiffness easier to dial in and might not look as bad as the rubber bands presently do. A ninjaflex "hammock" might also be in order. Thanks for sharing this - it's great!

Vibration Damper for Prusa i3 mk2 UPDATE: Thicker and sturdier version released

Would love to see how they turned out in ABS! Why don't you create a "I Made One" and show it off! ;)
My ABS attempt (without an enclosure) had a lot of curling on the overhanging legs. I will have another go when I can throw an enclosure together. :)
