This will be my post to follow my build of a 3d printed and a metal A3 setup side by side. I just ordered a metal kit from Chris and have previously 3d printed an A3 kit for this. I ordered 2 stepper kits from omcsteppersonline.com

I used a Sunlu S8 printer with hatchbox PLA. No issues with shrinkage when using the 3d printer files.
What filament did you use and did you have any issues with shrinkage? I'm planning on using PLA but I'm not sure whether to print the resized parts or the regular size parts.
unfortunately the plastic one is already rehomed.
Hi, when the two is built could you do some payload testing? I would really like to see the capabilities of both builds.
Would also be cool if somebody tried something like this video https://youtu.be/XpDG8VxZsw4
Where he puts metal inside the 3d printed parts to reinforce the strength, to see if that helps
Just an update, waiting on gripper and encoder wires. Already started on both new arms. Up to joint 3 so far.
