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.
Taulman3d ( http://taulman3d.com _ produces a range of filaments. You can buy them directly or through Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=bl_sr_industrial?ie=UTF8&field-brandtextbin=Taulman&node=16310091) or through many 3D printing stores.
The filament I like for this is t-glase, which is extremely strong and looks great.
