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.
FYI, when I asked the lead technical FTC person at our state FIRST organization, he said that the Samantha has adequate internal ESD protection but the NXT does not. Given this, he said that the surge protector should be placed electrically close to the NXT to protect it and that having a surge protector by the Samantha is not necessary. So folks may want to consider mounting this part as close as possible to the NXT and use a very short USB cable between the NXT and the surge protector. Best of luck to all teams!
