Introducing the Brand New Photon Zero by Anycubic
A new 3D printer has hit the market - the Anycubic Photon Zero, boasting a very appealing price tag along with innovative specifications. Due to its affordability, the Photon Zero is ideal as an introduction to resin 3D printing, or hobbyists who desire a user-friendly printing process.
The Photon Zero has a lot of attributes to make it desirable for beginners to the 3D printing industry.
Some key features include:
- Extremely affordable, sitting at just $169
- Precise Printing with smooth z-axis motion from the linear rail and lead screw
- Smoother and More Detailed Finish supports up to 16x anti-aliasing
- Quick Slicing software (80MB file slices in 32 seconds) for hollowing support and model cutting
- Printing Stability from UV cooling system
- Ease of Access with touch screen and USB port
- Accurate Visibility of how much resin left with marks in the resin vat
- Quick and Easy to replace FEP, saving resin and printing time
- Consistent distribution with upgraded UV light module
- Functionality with updated software and number of print prep tools for more
- Enhanced Adhesion between platform and print from brushed aluminium platform
Because the Photon Zero is quick and easy to set up, it is a great candidate for individuals who are embarking on a new journey into the world of resin 3D printing. Due to the compact size of the 3D printer, the Zero is accessible to more individuals looking to take their first steps into resin 3D printing.
During our Stress tests:
- Succeeded in printing a 10 degree overhang
