My attempt to anneal my PLA arms for better strength did not go as planned... On the plus side, it is noticibly stronger, on the minus side, looks like this

I thought about annealing guess I'm glad I didn't try. But I haven't had any problems thus far with the strength of printed parts mostly.

Any updates on the build?

ok getting bak to revising gus for the new arms.. i had built it according to the first arms and after a lot of head scratching realised that these arms are not compatible with 18mm aluminium drive spool and hence had a lot of string overlapping which was causing the the errors and it made it impossible to calibrate

so now i am reprinting the new arms.. is the repository upto date?
also the pulleys are now 604zz ? right? :?:

thanks
