Has anyone used the new Makerware 2.2.0? Answered

Makerbot released the newest version of their Makerware last week. I haven't had a chance to play with it much.  There are some updates, but I've heard that some aren't so new (if you used skeinforge).  

As cool as kitty-cat infill is, what do you guys think?

Autodesk also released a 3D printing utility - on your 123D models page, click the "Fabricate" dropdown, then "3D Print at Home". 

Give them a try!

I love arh and I want get better drawing. I cahn draw good but I need practice. I have classes in university and I getting better so fast but I need to study more. I want finish my degree in arh and do graphic design

That's interesting - it may be a hardware issue, but the prints I've done w/ 2.2 are structurally less robust. The infill looks clean, but the layers have been splitting.

Been using it for some of my prints. I am definitely getting better detail, and the reduction in support material is really nice and seems to work as advertised. The only down side is that it does not seem to handle slicing of high poly count intersections as well.

I'm printing a cylinder with a highly subdivided face: with earlier versions of makerware, the center printed smoothly, with the latest, I get a sharp outward bump. Not a show stopper, but annoying in a three steps forward, one step back kind of way.
