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.

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

      Hi, we're Crow Land Publishing, and here's our first book, Wickerpunk. A supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with application for all fantasy and horror games, such as Pathfinder, Call Of Cthulhu and even superhero games, like Champions. It will be 275 pages.
      Folk horror – horror and supernatural fiction that relies on elements of the past, folklore, superstition, the dreadful majesty of nature, the darkest urges of old religion. And old gods. Where the landscape itself is a symbol of fear and dark majesty. 

Heroic fantasy – a dream of blades and magic, a dream of defiance of the dark powers of the world, where we can be our truest ideals of our self. 

And when these genres collide – we have Wickerpunk.  A genre in which the ancient and natural world of the Wyld meets the imperialist world of Industry.
      If you like film such as Gawain and the Green Knight, Dragonslayer and The VVitch, you'll like our book.
      If you like games such as Maiden of Sker, Greedfall, and Hellblade, you’ll like our book. 

If you like anime such as Princess Mononoke, The Ancient Magus’ Bride and Faery Gone, you’ll like our book.
      If you like TV shows such as The Witcher, Game of Thrones, (especially the White Walkers stuff!) and the classic 1980s Robin of Sherwood, you’ll like our book. 
      If you like novels such as The Mists of Avalon, The Dark Is Rising and The Broken Sword, you’ll like our book. 
      Wickerpunk is a sourcebook that instructs GMs and players alike on what wickerpunk looks like in a game of D&D or any fantasy roleplaying game.

      We have a small and short campaign live at Kickstarter.
      As the clunky title suggests, It's about a big virus, his small buddy and some masked adventurers.
       
      The all in level is 50 USD (60 Canadian) + postage
       
      Thanks for having a look!

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      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.
