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

I still think the GUS is one of the most fun-to-watch printer, and I've got a custom-cut aluminum bed waiting for me to undertake it some day.
So thanks for posting your progress, @ekaggrat!

How are you finding the accuracy of yours so far? It looks like the spiral vase is working well for you, but do you think you'd be able to, say, print a GUS arm with it?
