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.
I turn my motors a little here a little there on every single print WHILE the printer is going. It doesn't hurt it at all, and it helps me get the first layer down perfectly every time. I just make my adjustments while it's printing the circle around the print. I use the printerboard with marlin firmware, and when the motors are not actually turning they are powered off, so it feels easy and loose to adjust. once it is going I never see a problem.
