Anycubic, a leading 3D printer manufacturer, has launched its latest resin-based LCD 3D printer series: Anycubic Photon Mono X 6K is the Chinese company’s first 9.25-inch 6K desktop model. It is debuting alongside the budget-friendly Anycubic Photon Mono 4K.
The new machines are expected to provide an even friendlier user experience as well as high-quality prints, in line with Anycubic’s recently released products. The Photon Mono X 6K comes with an improved 5,760 x 3,600 pixels resolution and print resolution up to 34 microns. Additionally, it features an industry-leading 350:1 black and white contrast screen, enabling it to 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 print volume of 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. Printing speed has also been improved: with 15 bright LED lights and high light transmittance screen, the printer can work at a higher speed. It needs only 1.5 hours to print a 12 mm garage kit at the maximal printing speed, saving 4.5 hours compared to the Anycubic Photon, and 1.5 hours over other run-of-the-mill 6.8-inch 3D printers.
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,” said James Ouyang, Vice President of Anycubic.
Anycubic also introduced a budget-friendly 3D printer- Anycubic Photon Mono 4K, which upgraded the print area, exposure screen size and printing precision compared with the first generation Anycubic Photon.
Pricing and availability
Anycubic Photon Mono X 6K will be available starting today, November 15th, 2021, from the Anycubic official store with a pre-order offer of $599 for a limited number of units, before ultimately retailing for $659.
