Anycubic Unveils Two Powerful New 3D Printers: Mono X 6K & Mono 4K
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.
Anycubic, a leading 3D printer manufacturer, has launched its latest resin-based LCD 3D printer series – the first 9.25-inch 6K desktop model, Anycubic Photon Mono X 6K, alongside the budget-friendly Anycubic Photon Mono 4K.
High Precision for Premium Prints
Delivering superb user experience and premium prints, the Photon Mono X 6K comes with a much-improved 5,760 x 3,600 pixels with up to 34-micron print resolution offering a higher level of detail for 3D models.
Additionally, it features an industry-leading 350:1 black and white contrast screen, so you can print models with extremely sharp, clear edges and corners.
Larger Size to Unleash Creativity
Equipped with its 9.25-inch 6K LCD screen, the Photon Mono X 6K has a significant print volume — up to 9.6 x 7.8 x 4.8 inch / 24.5 x 19.7 x 12.2 cm — which is 247% larger than 6.08-inch 3D printers, opening up the possibility for significantly larger prints.
Super-Fast Print Speed
The latest Anycubic Photon Mono range feature impressive print speed. With 15 bright LED lights and high light transmittance screen, they’re able to print efficiently to save you time.
For example, it needs only 1.5 hours to print a 12mm garage kit at the maximum printing speed, saving 4.5 hours compared to the original Anycubic Photon, and Anycubic says this is 1.5 hours faster than other run-of-the-mill 6.8-inch resin 3D printers.
Protecting What Matters
The exposure screen is one of the essential components of 3D printers. To reduce the frequency of screen replacements, the Photon Mono X 6K and the Photon Mono 4K have added a dedicated and replaceable anti-scratch film between the protective film and the screen itself, which helps extend the screen‘s service life.
Universal Resin Compatibility
Adjustable light power regulation means the Photon Mono X 6K and the Photon Mono 4K are compatible with standard 405nm UV resins while supporting other resins with different wavelengths. Additionally, adjusting the light power can also significantly extend the lifespan of the screen.
“The release of Anycubic Photon Mono X 6K is the sequel to the success of Anycubic Photon Mono X, demonstrating our philosophy of constantly listening to customers and our hard work to advance product performance to meet customers’ strict criteria for printing quality. The launch brings us closer to the dream of helping people unleash their creativity and turn their imagination into reality.”James Ouyang, Vice President of Anycubic.
Anycubic also introduced a budget-friendly 3D printer, the Anycubic Photon Mono 4K, with an upgraded the print area, exposure screen size, and printing precision compared with the first generation Anycubic Photon.
Pricing and Availability
(Considering the short arrival time, it will be released in the US first and two months in EU later.)
The Photon Mono 4K will debut on Nov 15 from Anycubic official store, and Anycubic Amazon store starting at a price of only $269 for the first 1000 units. Then retail price will back to $289 in some areas. So buyers need to move fast!
