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.
You do not need any screws. All parts are printed and snap fit, except the bottom brace which is just a friction fit that you could glue if needed.
I think that this would be a good challenge for your daughter. As you may have gathered from my instructions, it will take some patience and persistence to get everything moving smoothly. This is partly a challenge for printing, and partly a challenge for post processing.
And yes, it makes a great gift! I gave the one in the pictures to my dad, so I will be making another one soon.
