Anycubic Celebrates 7th Anniversary with Revolutionary 3D Printer Launch
At 3DSourced we’ve covered everything 3D printing and 3D since 2017. Our team has interviewed the most innovative 3D printing experts, tested and reviewed more than 20 of the most popular 3D printers and 3D scanners to give our honest recommendations, and written more than 500 3D printing guides over the last 5 years.
3D printer manufacturer Anycubic celebrated its 7th anniversary on September 2, 2022, with a new online product launch of both new resin and FDM printers.
“Anycubic keeps innovating and putting the latest patented technologies into new products. We introduced Anycubic’s first desktop DLP technology-backed product, the Photon Ultra, the M3 series equipped with our innovative LighTurbo light source technology, and the Kobra series adopted the LeviQ automatic leveling technology. All of these demonstrate our solid tech strength, and there is even more to come after our 7th anniversary.”James Ouyang, Vice President of Anycubic.
Along with this celebration, Anycubic announced several new printers, new ABS-like resin, and a range of new technological innovations to be implemented within their new 3D printers:
The second-gen DLP printer Photon D2 is an upgrade on the previous Photon Ultra. It features:
- Dual Algorithms for Superior Precision
The latest light uniformity compensation algorithm enhances light uniformity to 92%. This means the same amount of light is projected across every location of your print, creating a more consistent print result. Additionally, the 16-step gray anti-aliasing algorithm ensures sharp, neat, and smooth surface finishes on your 3D printed miniatures.
- Hassle-Free Screen Maintenance
DLP 3D printers use a different light solution than LCD printers, and one of the main disadvantages of LCD printers is the screens frequently need replacing. DLP printers don’t have these issues, and the Photon D2 uses a projector with a 20,000 hour lifespan rather than an LCD screen that requires consumables.
- Larger Dimensions for Creation
Compared to the Photon Ultra, Photon D2’s printing size and printing area increases to 130mm x 73mm x 165mm and 95cm2, 162% and 55%, respectively.
- Quiet and Low Power Consumption
DLP technology offers features such as low heat generation, low noise, and low power consumption. The heat generated during operation can be kept within 45 degrees without external fan accessories or upgrades.
The Photon D2 is also very quiet, operating at just 35 decibels. It also only consumes 15 watts of power, 25% of the power consumption of standard LCD 3D printers, making it low-carbon and energy-efficient.
Leveling has always been a major challenge for new FDM printer users. To welcome and entice more users to the 3D printing world, Anycubic continues to use the technology in the Kobra series and, especially, incorporates the Anycubic LeviQ auto-leveling system into the entry-level Kobra Go at a great price point.
- Fun Building, Fun Printing
Kobra Go adopts a DIY modular assembly. The DIY assembly helps beginners understand how an FDM printer works.
- Smart Anycubic LeviQ
Kobra Go is equipped with the self-developed Anycubic LeviQ automatic leveling system. The Anycubic LeviQ system simplifies the leveling process, for an effortless calibrating experience even for beginners. The entire leveling procedure takes only six minutes, sparing beginners from this challenging manual leveling.
- PEI-coated Metal Sheet
The widely-welcomed PEI-coated metal sheet also goes with Kobra Go. The quality metal sheet is hard-wearing, shock-proof, and can withstand bending. With the magnetic printing bed, the sheet sits firmly, and when finished, users can easily take off the models by slightly bending the sheet.
Even as an entry-level product, Kobra Go makes no sacrifice with its printing speed. The typical printing speed is 60mm/s and can reach up to 100mm/s. The machine adopts the separate self-developed separated extruder, which further accelerates printing.
- Small Makes Big
Kobra Go’s printing volume and size are 12.1 liters and 220 x 220 x 250mm, respectively, meeting various printing needs.
Anycubic LighTurbo2.0 Improves Accuracy
Light source technology has always been the bottleneck preventing LCD 3D printers from achieving better precision. Anycubic’s next generation LighTurbo2.0 light source tech adopts COB lens + curved reflectors, which turns large angle light into small angle light. It then converts light into nearly collimated light through a curved reflector, which solves the problem of stray light interference caused by the lens and guarantees high precision printing.
Anycubic Collaborates with JBD to Explore MicroLED Application in 3D Printers
Anycubic and JBD jointly developed Anycubic’s first consumer-grade MicroLED 3D printer. The application of MicroLED in 3D printers opens up the possibility of printing miniature and microfluidic models with astonishing precision and lower costs and serves as a perfect demonstration of Anycubic’s endeavors in seeking 3D printing advancements.
Anycubic ABS-Like Resin Pro Provides Outstanding Performance to Professional Fields
Anycubic ABS-Like Resin Pro features high strength, toughness, precision, and anti-shock capabilities. Compared to the standard resin, the significantly enhanced performance allows Anycubic ABS-Like Resin Pro to effectively prevent parts from being damaged during usage, catering to models with higher material performance requirements.
