Using this firmware http://www.instructables.com/id/MeArmJoystick-recording/

Overextruding in the first plate of parts caused a big skip, but I reset it and lowered the extrusion and it finished well enough.

Seems to work

The parts were pressed to fit on the servo motor arm with a mug of hot water to soften the pla. I took a video of it and need to make a gif.

Plate 2 is printing with the extrusion setting and temperature that plate 1 ran overnight successfully with (606s/mm and 195*C).

The nuts and bolts I was trying to use did not work very well. I found a bunch of screws for plastic cases that worked well.

Controls set up using some 10k pot joysticks from a game controller. Left button is 'record' and right button is 'play'. The interface is klunky, but I think I can modify the firmware I used to smooth out it's mode switching.
