Create highly detailed 3D prints with this Photon Mono resin printer by Anycubic. Unlike filament (FDM) type 3D printers, this resin printer uses UV light that passes through its high resolution LCD screen to cure the resin layer by layer where it is needed. This method produces a much more detailed and smooth print with less visible print layers.
The Photon Mono features a monochrome 2K LCD for detailed prints up to 130mm long by 80mm wide. The two high quality Z-axis rails provide build heights up to 165mm high with layer resolutions between 0.01 and 0.15mm. Thanks to the monochrome LCD, exposure times are reduced to just 1.5 seconds per layer so you can achieve print speeds up to 55mm per hour. The monochrome screen also provides up to 2000 hours of print time, which is four times longer than colour LCDs.
To operate the printer, simply use the Anycubic slicer software to prepare and save the model to the supplied USB thumb drive, which you insert into the USB port on the printer. Use the 2.8 touchscreen to operate and monitor your printers progress.
The Anycubic slicer software supports up to 16 times anti-aliasing, with fast slicing, hallowing, split model, and text paste features.
Other features include quick FEP replacement, UV-blocking top cover, matrix parallel light for uniform exposure, and top cover detection that stops the printing if the cover is removed.
