More efficient, quieter, and smoother than using the H-bridge hack on the GEN 3 extruder controller to drive a stepper based extruder and cheaper than using a full on stepper controller. This simple Pololu stripboard will let you hook up a 1/16 microstepping stepper motor for under $20. Even someone with my pathetic soldering skills can build one.
A BOM and more documentation can be found here: http://reprap.org/wiki/Pololu_Extruder_Stripboard
Instructions for running a stepper extruder on a MakerBot running pre-V2 firmware can be found here: http://wiki.makerbot.com/stepper-driven-extruder
Note: I'm using this on my RepRap and haven't actually tested it on a MakerBot yet, but it should work.
