ANYCUBIC Amazon official storefront is currently offering its Photon Mono X 6K resin 3D printer for $499.99 shipped after cutting the coupon on the page. Normally at $660, this solid $160 discount marks a return to the 2022 low price we’ve been tracking. Equipped with a 9.25-inch monochrome 6K LCD and UV LED array, the Photon Mono X 6K” can print a typical 4.7-inch model in 1.5 hours, which takes 4.5 hours less than Anycubic’s Photon”. The build volume measures 244 x 198 x 122 mm, which is large enough to print tabletop game models and other toys. If you currently own an FDM 3D printer and want to get started in the world of resin, this is the printer for you. See below to find out more.
The leap between FDM printing and resin printing is vast with different sets of knowledge that need to be accumulated over time. One of the most important parts of resin printing is the post-processing involved. You need to wash off the uncured resin and then use additional UV lamps to do the final curing so that the surface is not sticky. This process can be assisted with the ANYCUBIC washing and curing station to $99. This station set comes with a sealable tub to hold your isopropyl alcohol with a stir bar to wash your prints, then use a tower of UV lights to cure the models. Everything is timer controlled so you don’t accidentally harden a part and get cracks or shrinkage.
Although you can find tons of files online that you can download and print, there’s something to be said for the feeling you get when you print something you’ve created. But to create models, you will need a computer capable of running modeling software. One option is the Alienware X15 R1 i7/16GB/1TB/RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop for $1,536.50. The RTX 3070 GPU and 11th Gen i7 processor will power most games you throw at it, even on high or ultra settings, and are enough to power CAD programs like Fusion 360.
Features of the ANYCUBIC Mono X 6K resin 3D printer:
- The Anycubic Photon Mono X 6K resin 3D printer can print up to 9.6 x 7.8 x 4.8 inches at a time, dimensions similar to a super midi rugby ball. The large build volume gives you more space and freedom to create any cube shape.
- Adopting a screen with 350:1 contrast ratio, Anycubic Photon Mono X 6K provides your 3D models with super sharp and clear edges and corners.
- 40 bright LED lights are placed in a matrix to make a powerful and parallel light source, so Anycubic Photon Mono X 6K can provide ≥90% light uniformity and ≤44395 lux power density at each layer, which allows for quick printing.
