Anycubic has unveiled its latest innovation, the Photon Mono M5s.
This new entrant to the resin 3D printer market is the first consumer-grade 3D printer to boast a leveling-free feature, and it also provides a whopping 12k resolution. This is the first 12K resin 3D printer on the market, as far as we know.
Anycubic has been making 3D printing technology both affordable and accessible to a wide audience since 2015, and its latest product, the Photon Mono M5s, is no exception. This resin printer is equipped with a large 10.1-inch monochrome LCD screen, delivering an astounding 11520 x 5120 pixel resolution, bringing model details to life with near-microscopic precision.
Revolutionary Features of the Photon Mono M5s
The Photon Mono M5s marks a significant leap in the industry as it is the first consumer-grade resin printer that eliminates the need for manual leveling. Normally resin 3D printers require a calibration step to loosen the print plate and carefully level it before printing can occur. If done improperly can be print failures. Now, the leveling-free feature will be a boon for users who have experienced printing failures due to improper leveling.
Normally resin 3D printers require a manual calibration step to loosen the print plate and carefully level it before printing can occur. If this is done improperly, there can be print failures. The Photon Mono M5s marks a significant leap in the industry as it is the first consumer-grade resin printer that eliminates manual leveling. The M5s uses innovate ve mechanical sensors to detect and automatically adjust the fit between the print platform and the floating leveling module.
This solution spares users from undertaking manual leveling, which sometimes causes printing failures when it’s not done correctly. The leveling-free solution not only reduces manual effort, but also increases printing success rates. The leveling-free feature will benefit operators who have experienced printing failures due to improper leveling.
Complementing this leveling-free solution is a three-times-faster printing process, which combines Anycubic’s High Speed Resin, a 3rd generation release film, and upgraded Anycubic Photon Workshop 3.1 slicing software. This combination should slash printing times by up to 74%, according to Anycubic.
Additionally, the Photon Mono M5s introduces an intelligent monitoring system to increase the printing success rate. This system meticulously examines hardware, detects resin levels, and monitors the printing process in real-time, promptly notifying users of any issues via the Anycubic App.
Photon Mono M5s Pricing and Availability
The Photon Mono M5s will be available for purchase starting May 22, 2023, with an early bird price of US$399 for the US and €399 in Europe. Anycubic also offers early bird customers a chance to win free STLs.
Users can visit the official Anycubic Store to subscribe for the updates, and get the latest notification when they are available for purchase.
This announcement represents a significant step forward in consumer-grade 3D printing technology. The leveling-free solution will undoubtedly streamline the printing process for users, while the enhanced resolution will allow for an unprecedented level of detail in models.
In addition the increased speed of printing could be very attractive for many. Having the ability to produce a model in only three hours instead of ten could be of great interest, particularly to those who print often.
The success of the Photon Mono M5s could potentially set new de facto standards in ease-of-use, speed, and quality for desktop resin 3D printers.
