The AnyCubic Photon is a resin desktop 3D printer made by AnyCubic. AnyCubic Photon has a build area of 115 x 65 x 155mm and a layer resolution capability of 47 microns. This is a high-performance 3D printer. The 2.8-inch full-color touch screen provides you real-time printing status. It can bring more fun to your printing.
The AnyCubic Photon DLP uses the vat photopolymerisation 3D printing technology. DLP stands for Digital Light Processing. For 3D printing, the AnyCubic Photon DLP selectively cures liquid resin layer after layer in order to build an object. It uses the 395-405 nm wavelength and is compatible with most of the resin materials available on the market. The AnyCubic Photon is equipped with an HD LCD screen which offers a 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution. The input is HDMI type. This 3D printer offers a build speed of 10mm-20mm/Hour. With a build area of 115 x 65 x 155mm, models will be small, but they are also beautiful. They have a layer resolution of 47 microns, so it has the potential for extremely detailed prints. That is if I can wrap my brain around the technology and the new terminology. It’s vastly different from filament printing, although the basics are the same. You still have an X, Y and Z axis, you still print in layers, and you still work with 3D models.
The AnyCubic Photon 3D printer comes complete with Marlin firmware already installed on the motherboard. Marlin basically takes the G-Code file that you’ve produced and controls the printer including the heaters, steppers and LCD display. But before any of this can happen you need to first create the G-Code file by following these steps: Either create your own 3D design with software like Sketchup or another CAD program or find an already created file on websites like Thingiverse or YouMagine. There are lots of things you can print including accessories for your 3D printer. The file that you’ll create or download will be in STL format. All you need to do is connect the printer to your computer via the USB cable and open the host software that you’re using. The instructional videos use Pronterface. Then just follow along with the instructions. There are written steps in the videos as well which make it quite easy to follow.
you’ll need to slice this file to produce the many layers that a 3D printer will print to create the final product. You can use software like Cura which is very popular or Repetier Host. This software will convert the STL file into the necessary G-Code format that your printer’s firmware will understand. You can access all of the Marlin firmware functions using either the LCD control panel or via USB cable using host software on your PC or MC such as Repetier Host or Cura. There is even a function to help with auto-leveling of the print bed.
This is the latest printer from AnyCubic and has just been released. AnyCubic is expecting the price of the AnyCubic Photon 3D Printer to be $502.39 With Coupon Code: GBTE, This is a DLP style resin printer like the Tevo Firefly, Wanhao D7 or MicroMake L2. The build volume is 115mm x 65mm x 155mm. It also comes with a color screen to interface with it.
