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.
See the attached photo. The Benchy on the left is before, and the Benchy on the right is after shorting the R49 resistors, which control the decay mode. You need really good eyes and a steady hand to either remove the resistors and replace them with a tiny piece of wire, or apply a blob of solder to the top of the resistors while they are in place (which is what I did), but I do alot of surface mount soldering under a stereo microscope.
The printer is not only "smoother", but much quieter.
