We'd love to hear from you if the print was successful.
Ultimaker2 Big Feet
I wanted some big (wide and tall) feet for our Ultimaker2. People have made a lot of different feet for the Ultimaker2 but none of them were exactly what I wanted. I started printing out the Big Feet and realized that they would be huge, so I slimmed them down a bit.3D printer parts and enhancements

Also I have heard (read) about the electronics of the UM2 overheating. So the feet are also there to improve air flow under the base. I don't know if the overheating thing is common, rare, or just an old wives tail, but I figure it probably can't hurt.
Lastly, I used plain jane PLA, well technically it is Form Futura Easyfil, so I don't expect the feet to help or hinder vibration by themselves. The 2" thick slab of closed cell foam should probably dampen some vibration... but I am no vibration expert.
Materials and methods
Just print 4 feet

Um. Good question. These are sized to fit the UM2, so....
How thick in the frame of the UMO?
The side panels of the UM2 are 5.3ish mm and the front and back panels are 6.1ish mm. I did not realize they were different when I designed this. I got lucky.
I would recommend printing one out at 100% scale with very little infill just to test the fit. You could also"bury" the part in the print bed so that it starts printing just below the feature you want to test. Does that make sense? I don't know if I am explaining it right.
What size do I print them at to fit the ultimaker?
Added elephant foot version.
You should totally make them look like elephant feet.
