Using HIPS for support

Joseph Chiu, 3D printing buddy of mine and filament supplier, has beat me to the punch on some of the HIPS experimentation. This was going to be experiment 3 for me, using the software tools to make disolvable supports. The latest version of Makerware (2.4.1) seems very well suited to making even the most difficult shape, a sphere, actually work. Part of this reason, I'm told, is that is changes the HIPS extruder to print at 250C, as opposed to 230C for ABS, a change I'll have to make myself since I'm overriding the GCode temp in Sailfish.

I'm looking forward to printing another Modibot, and having this one work well.
