Enter code at checkout: QHE4DJSA5YX2

I've bought before and AnyCubic ships from the states so you will get this within a week. They don't charge tax in CA so likely tax free for almost anyone.

Free shipping if you order just the printer. If you buy extra parts and accessories they will charge $15 flat rate.

Mars 2 vs Mono.... trade blows... roughly the same with nearly every reason to get one or the other being trivial. Best Price is truly the only deciding factor.

Between Saturn and Mono X...Mono X has a superior build size with a longer Z axis.

MASSIVE EDIT: Oops, entirely forgot the Mono uses pretensioned FEP sheet inserts so the Elegoo models can use cheaper do it yourself FEP sheets. Anycubic just recently got them back in stock so folks needing them have been SOL. I'm super lazy so I'm willing to pay for this feature, but if you are used to tensioning your own FEP that a large strike against Anycubic Mono.

2.1 x 3.8 inches
5.9 inches high

Far too limiting for the hassle. I can print small things pretty well with my Adventurer 3 quickly. Yeah it's not smooth but the simplicity of printing the old way vs dealing with resin, curing and cleanup just does not make it worth it for me.

The way I look at it per dollar...

Resin/Traditional

1. Quality: Resin
2. Speed: Traditional (if you add in curing for Resin)
3. Cost: Traditional
4. Hassle: Traditional

So yes we all want the great looks of resin but right now the ability to pop in a spool of filament for $20 and zero cleanup or preparation for a print just makes resin not ready for prime time.

I think resin is about 2-3 years behind but once it catches up with maybe some form of built in curing (don't ask me how LOL) and then resin will take over.
Obviously it doesn't take critical thinking to know you can't print an 8in vase with a build plate that is as small as whats on the Zero or even Mono, but as some have previously mentioned it kills for miniatures and multi-part models.

The thing people don't get looking outward in when comparing to an FDM is supports. Supports in resin printers can do what only FDM could ever dream of - stacking.

I can set a Photon Zero to print 15 minitures at once and go to sleep. Drop the entire build plate into a bucket of water and in 3 minutes that pile of lines and solids falls apart almost like butter. My Ender 3 V2 can't touch it for this use case.

And while it easily doesn't apply to all its disingenuous to compare a tool meant for other prints against one meant for this.

Traditional is nowhere near as fast as resin. Curing takes 5 minutes.

Again, this is just apples to oranges. It is great to point out the differences and the applications for using one type of printer over the other, but not to downplay another to suite your own needs.

Quote from onlyuhaibo :
Can this be used to print a training pistol (like blue gun)?
Would be too small for a single print, the max build size on this machine is roughly 3-3/4"x2-1/8"x5-7/8. You'd be better off with something like an Ender 3 if you wanted objects that size plus they would be a little more robust. This would be great for small detailed models though. If they were not so messy I'd be all over this but my print room is a spare bedroom with carpeting....no way the wife would tolerate a resin printer or the appendages that come along with them. With a filament based printer there is no mess that a vacuum can't cover up.

Quote from JohnB3723 :
For the price I guess it's a great deal but I just cannot get over the 2.5 inch build size. I'm told resin printers tend to have smaller print areas but after getting used to the larger print sized on most traditional 3D printers this was a deal killer for me.

I want to get into resin printing as I like the more finished look but me thinks we need another year or two before these catch up to the point in which I will jump in.
There's ones for $400-500 that have 9"+ area.

Quote from JohnB3723 :
I'm not downplaying anything. Both seem to take about the same time to print so even if you make that a tie you still have the small build size and mess to deal with. I want resin and will eventually get it but it's still a bit too new imho.

I was about to jump on this but when I saw how small the prints were I think I'll wait some more. I want larger not smaller https://static.slickdealscdn.com/ima...lies/smile.gif
Prints on SLS/exposure printing takes the same time to print a 1 layer no matter what the layer has on it. Meaning if it takes 30sec per layer to expose 1 or 10 chess piece(s), FDM would take 30sec per chess piece per layer.

The other thing is post processing time to get a smooth finish. It takes way way longer to post process FDM prints.

That said, People need to understand Resin printing can be dangerous to yourself and the environment if they aren't very diligent with cleanup/handling/disposal.

This type of resin requires UV light to cure properly. You're likely thinking of FDM printers which use different types of plastic filament when printing. Those do not requires curing in UV light.
You know about sunscreen?
