At that size, a fat Delta printer is probably the best because there the bed doesn't move at all. 

 

Slicers used to have settings for print speed at different layer height, so that you could get it to print at lower speed when it gets to a specific altitude. That could be used to combat the inertia issues of large prints. I think that type of setting just disappeared as printers became more robust.   

Cura still allows you to adjust the speeds, I believe.  But I haven't been paying much attention because I have settings pretty much the way I like them.  Just minor tweaks depending on the model I'm printing.

There seem to be two theories. The main one, if I'm understanding it right, is it's a better quality spare part replacement for the Z axis optical sensor that is already included. People were asking for it because the sensor on one of the review units had issues. Though that particular review unit also had one of it's belt tensioner smashed, so it may have been a case of physical damage rather than the part quality. The second one is that it's a replacement part for the filament run out. In either case you shouldn't need to buy one unless the included one fails at some point.

Anybody else not get the survey questionnaire to finish your order? I never did and requesting it didn't work either but found the workaround by going here https://survey.pledgebox.com/projects and signing up.

 

I've seen a number of people report that it ended up in their spam folder.

For some reason lately I've had various notifications sent to my hotmail address and they never show up anywhere. Think that is what was happening with this for me.

Latest update had them saying 800+ pledges hadn't filled in their surveys, so this may be the case. (Spam folders)

I think 800 out of 10,400 surveys still being outstanding after 1 week is pretty normal for a kickstarter even without surveys ending up in spam folders.

Yup, if they can keep up the current pace [and they said they expect to improve] mine should go out next week.

So in theory these have now started shipping, but it's a bit confusing what that actually means. 

 

Near as I can tell they are being shipped somewhere in China and will sit there for up to 25 days before beginning a slow journey to us. But still nice to see things are moving.

Ok, I've never seen a group of backers complain so much about a kickstarter that has started shipping EARLY. 

 

A lot of the people are picking ridiculous things to complain about. In fairness though, while people should be getting things around when I was originally expecting, changing to ship a month early by boat instead of shipping on time by air isn't really something to brag about.

Better a month early than a year late, like I've seen for too many other product designs -- some of which were obsolete or more expensive than retail at the time of release.

 

Wonder how that Coolest Cooler is doing.

 

Anyway, with such fast turnaround, I'm looking forward to their next 3d printer KS. Maybe I'll even understand how one works by then... :P

      I backed his last project (dice towers), and found them well worth what ended up being a long wait to get them. It seemed only right to share, 'cause he makes REALLY PRETTY THINGS. Go look.

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
       
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
       
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.
