Rick Pollack of Shaker Heights, OH, printed this cat design with the help of support structures that are printed along with the main object, but the extruder prints the support materials at a cooler temperature. This makes them easier to remove. Readers, have you played around with support materials settings in Skeinforge? [Thanks, clothbot]
