Thanks! The models where printed on a MakerBot Replicator 2 3D printer with PLA plastic filament. The settings where simple. Just choose High resolution in MakerWare, four shells and zero infill, as well as 30 mm/s for speed.

Thanks! Loved the article! :)

Great model! What are the exact settings you guys used to printed photographed models?.. I want to try the same settings and compare results. Thanks

For those interested, the CAD original is 3DM (Rhino), but IGS and SAT (ACIS) files were also exported and included in the zip.
