Nice! For CURA users: you must check 'Spiralize outer contour' to get a good print. If you do not, you get a (filled?) cup with a closed top.

ah, you found the answer... : )

Nice design!

I would also like to print one of these, But is this cup only possible to print using cura?

Makerware does not have any option to create a open top, it just fills the cup entirely with material..

Could you post a version that would be possible to print by makerbot owners?

you can print this cup using Cura, Kisslicer, Netfabb, Sli3ere [and many other slicers], I think the replicator can also read gcode created with other slicer, or not...?! [creating them with a certain [thin]wall thickness creates problems with most slicers and most FDM techniques]

The smoothness of the surface on the cups is amazing. I'm afraid to print them without the "Joris" setting on - we show anyone these cups and it makes everyone quiet while they take a minute to examine them in their hands.

Thanks for the nice Valentine surprise. Printed in Orange and White, they came out great.

Do you actually set the bottom thickness for one layer to be 1.2mm or is that the combined bottom thickness of 2-3 layers? I'm assuming its the former, correct?

I'm assuming you are printing with PLA, what is the flexibility of the cup at 1mm thickness? I print it at 0.5mm thickness and it has wonderful tensile "give" making it a nice example of flexibility in PLA printed objects.

It is the combined bottom thickness. Sometimes 3 layers, sometime 5 layers... 1mm wall thickness makes the cup pretty sturdy, feels really nice.
