When I choose my printer (makerbot replicator 2x) in Photoshop I do not have a choice to use PLA filament, its only giving me the option to use ABS or nothing. When I choose ABS although I am using PLA it as expected makes a mess. So how can I fix this?

In the Makerbot 2X profile that ships with Photoshop, uncomment the PLA defintion. It hasn't been tested as much as the ABS parameters (which is why it is disabled).
