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.

Here's what how the prints look with some paint thrown on to bring out the details. The only clean up I did was zapping them with a heat gun. Certainly not high grade, but better than I was expecting

UPS lied to us - it will not be arriving on Wednesday.   It's already in our grubby, grabby little hands!   And Brigid seems to have already decided which print is hers - it's on

Nope, swiped the image from Artisan Guild, who make the mini.   Eventually the Creality will be joined by another printer, possibly a Saturn, which I think can create prints like that.

Anyone know what the optic sensor is for? If I get it, I'll have to buy as i spaced off the share & email them part to get it for free.

 

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.

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.

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

Maybe the Elegoo Jupiter by the time we are ready....

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.
