MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
The Raspberry Pi foundation doesn't make the boards, they only design them. Kinda like Nvidia Reference. I don't think there is a difference, if there were the foundation would shut them down. I personally use the Element boards, because that's what they carry at a local shop.
