Nice looking holder. And bot-printable or not shouldn't really be a consideration for upload. Makerbot isn't the only printer in the game, and we certainly shouldn't be designing just for the limitations that exist in it.

The overhangs are cool, but not makerbot printable due to the lack of support material.

So, the support structure should also be generated?

No, Makerbot doesn't have any support material right now. I believe the limit on overhang angles is something like 45 degrees. The pieces that are hanging out in space just fall over when printed.

Of course this shouldn't stop anyone from submitting more complex designs. Maybe there should be a tag for botprintable or something.
