Is it me, or does your new printer have a much better resolution and far less obvious striations/printing lines? :)

I started printing that well, then my plastic snapped... Luckily it was right at the beginning of the build. Probably hadn't used it enough.
Clear filament looks great.

Here are some of my designs if you are interested (No pressure, they aren't as good as this other stuff.)

I just read that 123D wil be discontinued.

What alternatives (preferably not cloud-based) are there for hobbyists like us?

I just saw that too on the Autodesk site
Here is one of their alternatives.

Thanks, I'll give the spider a go.
I've downloaded 123D for my desktop and I'll make sure I keep it on my iPad.

Autodesk are strange. I use Sketchbook Pro for all my layer drawings/paintings and it's really good but I've kept the old Sketchbook too because the 'Pro' version is missing loads of the brushes. It does have improvements, more layers, more undo etc but why remove brushes?

those eyeball rocks are lovely and bizarre

Aren't they just. There's a lot of creativity in the 3D community. maybe being freed of production cost worries and logistics has something to do with it.

Could you post the link to that cthulhu file

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2086578

Took 22 hours at 10% infill and 0.1 resolution. No supports or rafts or anything.

That's very nice. I like those little plants too.
My printer has just broken on me. Gets to 94% ready and stops.
Cyclone Cook just came through. Took out the power (16hrs) and I think that fried the circuit board. I didn't even think to turn the thing off for when the power came back on.  GRRR.
I've been looking at the printers on Aliexpress. A bit of a gamble but for less than $200 USD if they work they will be a bargain. Then again I also have another coming (hopefully) from kickstarter that was less than $100 and runs off the light from your cellphone to harden the resin.
