Would you advise printing them with a high fill rate, or a low fill rate?

For the best damping properties so to speak

Finally got some rubber bands.. How the heck do ya get 'em in? 

I assume your question is about getting them into the toe? On the picture it is indicated how. Cut it as in the instructions, 62mm, then insert them folded into the toe and finally wrap them around the toe.

Saw the pic, I meant I was having trouble jamming the rubber bands in there.. Just had to cut away the teeth and whatnot, maybe mine came out a little sloppy. Sorry, I get frustrated quickly with my sausage fingers getting in the way :P

Ah, ok, yes it can be a bit difficult to get them in, but they have to be tight to have enough friction to prevent them from slipping out when you fold them over. I think I used a screwdriver to help pushing them in.

It prints perfectly without any supports with Replicator 1's/ReplicatorG's default accelerated settings (.27mm layer height, 80mm/s feedrate).

Gotta storm the produce aisle for some rubber bands.

Even without the rubberbandage it's a significant upgrade. Owe ya a beer. Thanks! 

Very clever!
Too bad i designed mine a few days before yours ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:25438http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... ) because  I would have derived it from your excellent rubber band idea. I really need taller feet so I wanted to be parametric, not just noise dampening.

I will have to upgrade :)

Customizable: ultimaker foot (hence, feet also)

I printed a set of these but the toe does not fit the hole without a bit of sanding. I was wondering if this might be a mis-calibration of my setup (I've only had it for a week) or if it's a common "feature". I did print it with a raft and these things are hard to fully remove.

Printing my last toe, now all I need is to find appropriate rubber bands. Nice work!

These are beautiful, just perfect! And are doing a great job of keeping my replicator from walking off the edge of the desk while printing in accelerated mode!

Ohhh me likey, I can't wait to try this tonight.

Fits perfectly on the MakerBot Replicator :)

that's nice! So maybe I need to change the name then ;)

Your prints look great btw, did you print them in ABS I assume? Any particular reason that you chose 90 degree infill?

They work very well, having reduced visible bot vibration at higher print speeds. I used black ABS and white ABS for the toe, the infill was left from a previous print, but worked well :)
