It would be nice if there was a version of the chaise lounge without the built in support. When scaled up to 1:12 and printed the gap between the support and print is a little too big and causes the print to look ugly.

Since its on 1:24 scale, if I wanted to printed for 1:12 scale, I need to reaize it to 200% is that correct?

Yes, resize to 200% to convert to 1:12 scale.

Printed this in PLA on my Rep2 (10%/2 shells/.20mm) and the legs won't separate from the included, printable plate. Also, they seem to be too big for the holes. Suggestions?

I cut them off with an exacto knife, along the layer lines. They are definitely a tight fit, but should pop in. I originally designed these for a thingomatic - haven't printed them on my rep 2, but the 2's tolerances should leave more room, not less.

I love what you are doing!! The one question I've been having is how to scale your 1:24 down to 1:48 for my ¼" models. I am a theatre set designer too and use ¼" scale most often. Is there a simple way to do that? Again, thank you for all that you make available. I just recently purchased the Replicator2 and love it!! I am not fond of the makerbot digitizer - it doesn't seem to scan very accurately.

I have some quarter scale files I could make available - most of the half inch don't work well when scaled down. Just need to get around to it... You need the right conditions to make the digitizer work right: no shine surfaces, the right positions for multi scan - it definitely has a learning curve. And not everything will scan well, on the digitizer or otherwise.

Truly great work. Now my dreams of finding model furniture for set models is coming true!

I bought my makerbot solely so I wouldn't have to make chairs out of illustration board ever again :)

What do you use for modeling software? I use Vectorworks, but I know a lot of people using Sketchup (Theater wise).

I'm using AutoCAD - for theatre, for drafting and for modeling cool things for thingiverse. I have a skewed opinion - because I work with and for people who also use auto cad, but it becoming more prevalent than vectorworks all the time.
