Yes, 3d printers can be useful.  First time trying a puzzle-fit, and it worked great!

Experienced all kinds of bugs: (1) an actual bug that got onto the hotbed crimp and fried it, (2) a Marlin firmware bug that prevents the filament from going forward (but still allowed retracts?), (3) filament bug: old brittle filament that broke or stripped, (4) hardware bug: worn filament gear + insufficient EZstruder tension.

Took apart the melty remnants of SpiderPig last night. GUS Simpson is still the most unique RepRap out there and i'm looking forward to whatever follow on +Nicholas Seward dreams up.

Has anyone built anything large with a Sarrus linkage?  I've seen this page plus the printer on Thingiverse built with them, but other than that, nothing.  I'm curious what level of flatness to expect as the mechanism raises up.

Kids, this is why you don't leave your GUS Simpson in a car, even on a California day that doesn't seem particularly hot.  Bad news: total loss.  Good news: the next one will be better.
