Any way you'd be willing to upload your model file (like a STEP file, or Parasolid)? I'm having a hard time with the auto-generated supports on the makerbot and wanted to model some supports in myself, but the STL doesn't contain any real model data to use.
ps- I've been out of the Makerbot loop for a while... I know there's dual extrusion now, but does it do supports?
yes, this was printed on a Dimension printer with soluble support, but I find the process of dissolving the support material to be such a pain in the neck that I try to design without undercuts anyway (overhang is ok, just no undercuts). In this case the parts broke away from the support material nicely.

Looks awesome!  Did you print with supports?  If not, what's your secret for dealing with the overhangs?
