In its collection of resin 3D printers, Anycubic has unveiled a new model. A follow-up to the Photon Mono 4K from last year, the Anycubic Photon Mono 2 is marketed toward “beginners” and appears to improve on it in several significant ways, with a 165 x 143 x 89 mm in print volume, which is 20% larger.
. Additionally, there is a slightly larger 6.6-inch monochrome LCD screen with a 4K (4,098 x 2,560 resolution, to be precise) and 35 microns XY resolution.
A more advanced LighTurbo matrix, the company’s exclusive light source, is also included in the Photon Mono 2.
It aims for more than 90% light uniformity and has fewer layer and grid lines. This, according to Anycubic, will produce prints with smoother surfaces and greater levels of detail. While a laser-engraved build plate purports to increase model adhesion and consequently print success rates. Anycubic also asserts that print speeds can reach 50 mm per hour.
Software-wise, Anycubic’s slicer, Photon Workshop, will be shipped with the Photon Mono 2 in its most recent iteration.
Its version 3.0 is said to have an “easier to use” user interface and a “more straightforward” slicing process.
Current drip-feeding of full specs is happening on Anycubic’s social media platforms. Although there has been no word on pricing, the Photon Mono 4K has an MSRP of $289, so we anticipate something in that range.
