to be honest, polishing is just for fun :)
I'm planning to print on paper tape from Tesa - like on my MendelMax (look at my earlier photos)

Finally all, three motor arms are ready. Time for slave arms! :)

Beautiful! (Your workshop beats my messy kitchen).

Looking at the photos I'd say it looks like you got a bulk discount on your filament :)

Wired one arm and I'm completely exhausted :-] (arm is printed in 3 parts and bolted together)
still trying to determinate how long should be wire - I don't have too much wire (90lbs Spectra!) to waste

I did a little trick: I put lower ends of arms into vice so it was fairly easy to operate and place wires. I'll post a photo tomorrow.

Bummer, this blue slave arm ruined the look :D Despite this - pretty neat.
I am jealous of your workspace now.

it's blue because I'm running out pink filament - now I know that it's decent design and I can reprint it in proper colour.
positive side for now: I can easily spot where is a front of the machine :D
