I think it will print pretty well if you rotate it 45 degrees, so that it's on it's edge. Mine is printing now. No supports, fine mode, no infill 2 shells. Netfabb Basic(free) will let you turn the stl on it's edge at 45 degrees. Makerware won't do that.
For makers who are complaining about extreme difficulty of raft or support material removal and rough bottom print finishing due to the removal, here is a tip:
For ABS material, print it at 220 - 230?.
If possible, adjust your 3D printer to print the cube within the recommended temperature and then when done, all the support materials can just easily peel off with only your hand...yes, without any tool, similar to how you peel off the orange's skin.
From my first companion cube before I share it here to my latest 10th cube, from the smallest 1? cube to 10? cube, I printed them all with the same print temperature setting. All of them, all their faces, top, bottom and sides are flawless, smooth, pretty and easy just like how GLaDOS intended it to be.
I printed my companion cubes with PP3DP UP! Mini 3D Printer with Octave Temperature Switch modification.
