Ground-Breaking True Leveling-Free Technology
For the most part, accurate 3D printing is the result of a leveled bed. That’s usually a challenging goal, though, because most 3D printers will present nozzle clogging, poor adhesion, and generally unleveled-related issues that compromise the quality of prints. The CR-6 SE offers precisely the opposite. Featuring an innovative true Leveling-Free Technology, this is a 3D Printer that lets you always rely on highly accurate results.
Out of the Box, Into the Action
No complications. No special skills required. No confusion. Your CR-6 SE is ready to use out of the box. You can easily assemble it in only 5 minutes and then all you need to do is plug it in and switch it on. The CR-6 SE 3D Printer starts working and delivering amazing results—whether you’re a pro or a newbie—in almost no time!
Customizable and Easy to Keep Modular Nozzle
Never see your creativity and productivity affected by nozzle-related replacement issues. The CR-6 SE is designed with a modular nozzle that means two things: you can customize it and you can also easily maintain it by replacing separate parts. From the heat block to the nozzle tip, among other parts, this is a Modular 3D Printer that’s easy to keep!
With All Ease in Assembly
The new CR-6 SE comes in modules that are crafted with quality aluminum profiles. The device can be easily assembled within 5 mins. Plugin and switch in on, printing starts right out of box.
Mighty and Dependable Extruder
Mounted on the printer's frame, the redesigned compact-size extruder means less weight, which promotes faster extrusion and delivers higher quality prints. The extruder clip on the extruder is quite a handy gadget that allows users to benefit from effortless filament extrude-in.
CR-6 SE is by now the most innovative 3D printer that we've ever designed. It is the ultimate printer for versatile makers, making 3D printing easier than ever before. And CR-6 SE is going to debuts Kickstarter Campaign from 6th May to 6th June. The earlier you pledge, the more surprise you will get!

Midlam keeps doing exactly what I want. Rounding up my collection with original miniatures that pairs up well with the original.
Yes, THEY'RE ALL METAL.
A Note on Metal
We moving onto a lead free high quality pewter from a reputable metal dealer. All our past metals had a high Tin content, but could contain a small quantity of lead (typically no more than 5%). Even still, we cannot guarantee that any of our metal will be entirely lead free.
So these are two I've been working on for the last week or so, two really small Tom Meier sculpts from Dark Sword Miniatures, ones from another post on the forum where I was complaining about eyes. Two really fun figures I think, excellently sculpted by Meier. Here's the first one:
and a few shots of her face up close. The eyes aren't perfect, but they turned out better than the first try before my repaint:
and then here's the male halfling thief. He's nice and basic, with a classic old school feel. He almost gives a Bilbo Baggins type of feel to this is you ask me:
and then here they are together:
and to give you an idea of their size, I put them next to a few recent reaper models, a few of my favorites, the female hobgoblin archer (metal version with nose) and the other one is one of the dark gnome gals:
So anyhoos, lots of photos, hope you enjoy!
This is for people who want to support the event but not for attending - you can get the program guide, various signed or rare books, and other goodies for your money.
I've done this for a few years already. Always got my stuff.

Welcome to The Outer Dark on This Is Horror. I’m your host Scott Nicolay bringing you news and interviews with the creative talents who operate far beyond the edge of the firelight. There Are Weird Things Out Here, My Friends…
When we conceived The Outer Dark podcast in 2015, we never expected it to take off like it has and to mean so much to listeners. As the tendrils of the Weird spread further into speculative fiction, film, and TV, people kept asking me and Anya when we were going to do something more hands-on. Thus was born The Outer Dark Symposium on the Greater Weird.
At the inaugural The Outer Dark Symposium in 2017, we were humbled to assemble a blockbuster line-up of contemporary Weird writers, including members of the State of Black Science Fiction community. In 2018, we took the symposium West and dreamed bigger and spookier with the Winchester Mystery House, and in 2019, we brought it back to Atlanta to Silver Scream FX Lab, a location that’s all about the love of Weird monsters.
For the past three years, the symposium has been a labor of Weird love, only made possible through a combination of memberships, sponsorships, donations, and crowdsourcing. Our hope always has always been to simply break even and make this an annual event.
It takes a Weird Village to make Something Weird Happen.
THE OUTER DARK SYMPOSIUM happens because YOU supported us, allowing us to share these important conversations with YOU and the Whole Weird World on our host network This Is Horror. If you haven’t checked it out, you can find programming from all three past symposia, as well as interviews with our guests and other groundbreaking Weird Renaissance authors on The Outer Dark podcast.
This year we’re thrilled to welcome our largest line-up yet, more than 50 of the most dynamic authors, editors, artists, publishers, and scholars in Weird fiction today. Yet our goal remains to keep the symposium immersive, intimate, and budget-responsible. Everyone attends all panels and readings and shares breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as welcome and author signing receptions and social activities to continue the conversation into the night. While keeping the same feasible model that worked well for the previous two symposiums, this year we raised our attendance to 100 memberships so more people can participate, plus we added an Educators Day on Friday including the inaugural Teaching Diversity in Weird and Speculative Fiction Roundtable, with a Friday-only deeply discounted ticket for educators and students.
We couldn’t assemble such an amazing line-up of program participants without waiving ticket fees and providing air and lodging support (approx. $7,000 or more than half our budget) to guests who needed support to participate, as well as covering meals, lodging, and gas for our hardworking volunteers. Other expenses include space rental, catering, audio equipment, badge printing/laminating, printing the program chapbook (offered to supporting members via this campaign), and other basic event expenses adding up to a total budget of about $13,500, even with every tactic of frugality that we can muster. By our calculations, calculating purchased memberships, sponsors and a few patrons that we have now, we need about $4,000 to break even. If by any unlikely chance, we do make any more than we need, that money will go straight back into seeding next year's symposium.
Therefore we are humbly reaching out to you again. Through this Indiegogo campaign, you can both help sustain The Outer Dark Symposium and receive cool rewards.
