Makerware 1.1 fixes the missing lines problem (nice job guys!) be sure to clear and then set again 'accelerated printing' when upgrading your firmware.
Inkscape can do a save as .dxf - the OpenSCAD manual refers to a walkthrough on the rep-rap forums - its a little fiddly, and you have to convert you curve to straight lines by adding points and converting the line type.

I appreciate you including the entire toolchain. :) What did you use to convert the SVG into a DXF? Thanks!

When I printed with MakerWare, it left parts out (left spoon in picture), but ReplicatorG worked fine. As I'll actually be using this for liquids, I prefer the result from ReplicatorG at this time.

I've used free tools as I don't like it when the originals are paid packages, even though its possible to work from a Things .stl it's still better to have the entire toolchain available for everyone.

Photo's are from a print in Yellow PLA, the object is slightly scaled down to be 15cm long.
