For some reason this doesn't slice properly in MakerWare.

Interesting. I'm afraid I don't know anything about MakerWare or what your alternatives might be. It definitely has a lot of geometry for a relatively simple design - I exported the curves from Inkscape and it decided to make them very smooth and I didn't complain - but it worked fine in my Cube software.

I'll have to tinker with it then. Maybe import/export from modeling software just to see if it was an issue between the .STL version/settings or anything else silly like that. I've had this issue a couple times with MakerWare on here and that sometimes fixes it, other times for some unknown reason there have been holes in the STL file that cause the slicing errors.

Do let me know if you figure it out - and I could either post an updated STL here, or feel free to post a derivative. The current STL is exported directly from Blender, and that file is there too. Blender doesn't have any useful options for STL export - it's just a one-step process.
