Anycubic unveiled the new Photon Mono 2 resin 3D printer.
Anycubic has specialized in desktop resin 3D printer for many years, and now has released the Photon Mono 2, an upgraded version of their very popular Photon Mono 4K. The Mono 2 could be an ideal choice for beginners who want to explore the world of resin 3D printing, as it includes several significant improvements that make it user-friendly, efficient, and affordable.
Specifications of the Photon Mono 2
The Photon Mono 2 features a 6.6-inch 4K+ masking LCD with an X/Y resolution of 34 microns (0.034mm), providing an excellent resolution of 4096 x 2560 pixels, enabling users to obtain vivid print details.
The printer also has a 20% larger print area compared to the Mono 4K, with a build volume of 165 x 143 x 89 mm, allowing for larger and more complex objects to be printed at once. This is not the largest resin 3D printer, but this build volume should be more than sufficient for most 3D high resolution prints.
Additionally, the Mono 2 has an upgraded of Anycubic’s advanced LighTurbo UV light system, resulting in fine and smooth prints.
The innovative laser-etched pattern on the build platform increases the bond between the first layer and the platform, preventing the first layer from peeling off the platform during the printing of models with a large footprint or wide cross-section. I’ve tested this feature on other Anycubic machines, and it definitely works very well.
Affordability and Availability
The Mono 2 is affordably priced at €209 in Europe and US$199 in the US market, making it accessible to a wide range of users. It is now available for purchase at the Official Anycubic store and will be offered for sale on May 5th, 2023, at 9PM EDT on Amazon, eBay, Walmart, and AliExpress.
The Photon Mono 2’s significant improvements make it a suitable choice for beginners who want to experience resin 3D printing’s benefits. With a larger build volume, higher screen resolution, and an upgraded LighTurbo UV light source, the Mono 2 should offer a fantastic printing experience for beginners and experts alike. Its affordability and availability on multiple e-commerce sites make it a highly accessible option for users.
Analysis of the Announcement
The Photon Mono 2 is a significant upgrade from the Photon Mono 4K, offering a larger build volume, higher screen resolution, and an upgraded LighTurbo UV light source. These improvements could result in an improved printing experience for users, making it an excellent choice for beginners who want to explore resin 3D printing. The Mono 2 is also affordably priced, making it accessible to a wider range of users.
Anycubic’s release of the Photon Mono 2 is indicative of the company’s commitment to advancing 3D printing technology and making it accessible to more people. We have been testing equipment from the company for several years, and the company consistently improves the product design at each release, including this one.
The company’s global reach and popularity will undoubtedly increase with the release of the Photon Mono 2, and we can expect to see more innovative 3D printers from Anycubic in the future.
