Re: Texture in version 8, fine, but don't export...?
So far as I can recall, there _are_ instances of folks printing 3D from Mathematica on those expensive machines. In fact, I have a small sculpture, received as a gift, that allegedly was designed and printed using Mathematica. But whether the printing was directly from Mathematica or through some intermediary export format I don't know.
