Anycubic 3D Printers
I’ve been seeing the Anycubic name pop up a lot lately. They seem to be making a name for themselves in the low-end market. Their Mega i3 has been getting a lot of praise for its quality at such a low price. Their Kossel seems to have the same response and is easily upgraded and expanded upon. They have a Resin DLP printer coming soon as well, bringing their low-cost solutions to this realm giving the Wanhao D7 and FLSUN – S Complete some competition.
Here is more information on the printers.
This is the latest printer from Anycubic and has just been released. Anycubic is expecting the price of the Photon to be $438 plus shipping (a bit over $100 to the US). This is a DLP style resin printer like the FLSUN -S Complete, Wanhao D7 or Micromake L2. The build volume is 115mm x 65mm x 155mm. It also comes with a color screen to interface with it.

The i3 Mega is an i3 Cartesian style printer with a 210 x 210 x 205mm build area. It is about average for an i3 designed printer. Where it goes beyond other printers in this category is that it comes with a metal frame, touch screen control, plus has power loss recovery and filament sensor built in. These latter two are non-existent in the lower end market. Like the CR-10 and Tevo Tornado, it also comes “mostly” assembled and tested. This is one of the printers I talk about in my 3D buying Guide because of the reviews. You can see video reviews from 3D Maker Noob and well as CHEP 3D Printing as well as Greg_FL talking about it. You can purchase it from these online stores: (Amazon | Gearbest | AliExpress Official Store).
The other 3D Printer I have heard good things about, at a low price, is the Kossel Delta 3D Printer. It comes in 2 versions, the Pulley Version and the Linear Rails version. These are “Kit” printers, in that they come disassembled. The Delta design is great for faster prints, but is a more advanced printer than the i3 Caresian styles. The Pulley version has a 300mm build height and 180mm diameter build surface while the linear rails version has a 270mm build height and 200mm diameter build surface. PressReset and Make Anything have done good reviews on this printer. Anycubic even features a series of build videos to help you get this together.
I have now received one of these Delta printers from Anycubic. So far, I have a preview done. Deltas are very different and very cool to watch work. I’ll have a full review up once I get more time printing and get a good understanding of this printer. After printing for 2 days, I have to say, I am loving this printer. It prints FAST. And the prints look good.
