Well, new MakerWare by Makerbot does not support old Makerbots (Thing-o-Matic and Cupcake), even tho the sw is ready and adding them would take seconds. Unfortunately it is closed source (Makerbot had to pay for Qt license to be able to close the source) Fortunately it is easy to bluff it and still use it with older machines!

(Update: Sorry, official support should come "soon" http://www.makerbot.com/docs/makerware/use/ You have atleast inside look under the hood)

I hope it helps you guys!

As I follow deeper and deeper I find more and more interesting stuff. I did another update to my post here http://josefprusa.cz/open-hardware-meaning/#update

Nice chronology is kept in this post http://marcuswolschon.blogspot.cz/2012/09/occupy-thingiverse.html

Screw makerware if you want your old bot supported this is the thing to turn to:

I'm printing at 100 micron levels with my Thing-O-matic.  Accelerated and wonderful.

Thanks for posting this.  I am going to try it out.  The new MakerWare hangs on my mountain lion mac pretty frequently..that and what's the pre-pane they add for?  It doesn't start anything.

Bre said they would support ToM (no mention of Cupcake) with MakerWare....I'll wait and see.

:/ I hope the official support for the TOM arrives before a new printer is released
