Once considered complete science fiction, 3D printers are not only here to stay in everyday life, but there is also a best 3D printer for every budget and use case.
Anycubic, known for its sleek 3D printers with yellow housings, is a great example of this, with several printers available at different price points. Some, like the Anycubic Photon Mono 4K, are ideal for beginners, while the Anycubic Photon Mono X is a solid advanced user option as it offers greater build options. Then there’s the Anycubic Photon M3 Max, which can print items up to 13 x 11.7 x 6.5 inches.
The best part is that all three are currently on sale at Amazon, with 30% off Anycubic Photon Mono 4K (opens in a new tab), 20% off Anycubic Photon Mono X (opens in a new tab)and $260 Off Anycubic Photon M3 Max (opens in a new tab). Each also includes Anycubic’s Photon Workshop software.
The cheapest option, the Mono 4K, takes its name from the 4K screen included in the base. It prints quickly, with a single layer taking just 1.5 seconds and a 4.7-inch model being ready in around 2.5 hours.
The Mono X printer is a fast and quiet option that can be controlled via an app or the built-in display, and a new UV cooling system makes it more efficient with heat too.
The Photon M3 Max offers a 13.6-inch screen for previewing your builds before getting to work, and it can print objects up to about the size of a number 5 rugby ball (that’s the comparison of the maker). It includes resin, so you can start right out of the box.
Each of the three printers has a user review score between four and five stars, with all praised for their ease of use and build quality, as well as print results.
