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.

New to 3d printing, but not intimidated by it. Is this a good printer to start with? I don't need to start at beginner
Either the Zero or the Mono are good. Even later on you decide to go in on Mid-tier size like the Mono X or even larger, the smaller units will get use.

One, its just nice to have multiple printers for time and speeds sake. Two, you'll always use every printer you have because of this.

For example: Printing the Infinity Stone glove from Avengers. You can use a larger printer for the main glove and that could take you awhile... in the meantime your smaller printers can be used to print translucent resin for the Infinity Stones themselves. Expediting the entire print. Not to mention, Three, you can dedicate printers to specific resins so that you don't have to keep cleaning up vats to swap material.

Thanks for the reply - I had seen this in my initial search a few weeks ago.. Seems to be reviewed rather well?

I personally do not use it, but do know for a fact its extremely easy to use and consistent results. I do not know how loud it it is though in a home environment... I have not been a fan of enclosed printers for the difficulty in upgrading.

Phrozen 4k maybe. If you just want to go all out right away
Elegoo is losing so much money lagging behind production and losing market share to Anycubic and Phrozen for the Saturn.

This was low enough to finally bite. This is my first 3d printer. I bought the mono with the washer and 1KG of resin. Two separate orders to double dip the discount. Free shipping on both orders. $20 off total. No tax in Ca. Total cost shipped was $316.

I think this will be a much more productive purchase than the Xbox Series S that I really don't need with my PC and PS4 backlog...well, I don't NEED a 3d printer either.

It gets the creative juices flowing... enough that I think in hindsight, I really needed it.

I always wanted a resin printer, but can't recall anything specific that I wanted to print that a FDM couldn't. Any idea when the sale ends?

Anycubic.com has been having a sale for a while now and the price fluctuates. This is the lowest they have ever had these two machines (including the wash and cure 2.0) and with a working $10 off coupon makes it just that much sweeter. A month ago I bought the Mono + W&C 2.0 for $328 which was a great deal... right now you can get them for $288. If all you want to do is print miniatures/jewelry/small items... the Zero with a W&C 2.0 for $199 is insane.

No tax and free shipping makes this a no brainer for anyone that wants to dabble.

Is the Photon Zero worth it? $99 is a hard deal to turn down. It list 480p resolution (0.1155 mm) vs the Phonton Mono's 2K (0.051 mm).

Does anyone had experience with either? I'm wondering if the 480p resolution might be too low.

It's definitely not too low, but it is definitely lower. Almost no one printing standard models will miss the detail because you're talking about printing at 1/20th of a millimeter on the Mono vs 1/8th of a single millimeter on the zero. For sure there are models out there that benefit from that distinction, but most do not.

I can see how this seems like I'm trying to minimize the size difference - I'm not. Just think about what you want to print. If the details in those models aren't even 12% of a single millimeter then you miss nothing with the Zero other than build volume.

Plus if goes both ways; You dont like resin printing? You can sell it for what you bought it for. You do like it and want to upgrade? You'll always print small parts with it while a larger machine handles the larger jobs.

This probably a stupid question but would there be a need to get a printer like this if you already have a Ender3? I am just getting into the basics of 3 printing and have a lot to learn.

Its good to have both because they both excel in different aspects.

FDM printing, what you have is the better all-around, but if you think you want to print small stuff that isn't quite getting the smoothness and detail you want... resin is the way to go.

Thank you OP. I wish I could give you more than one rep. I have been into FDM printing for a long time. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy printing resin, but so far it has been a blast. I received the package very quickly, and within a short time had it printing the test cube. It came out great, and with detail I could never get with FDM. Even with this being "low resolution" the prints come out beautiful. It is going to take some learning, and have had more fails than successes, but I have learned from each one of them. Example: Making sure the service area on the build plate is larger than what can come in contact with the FEP sheet.

Pros:
Print quality compared to FDM.
Print speed doesn't change when adding detail. Looks to do entire layer at once.
Easy to use - Menu on printer, bed leveling, empty resin from bin.
Build quality - This one surprised me because of the price.
Appearance of the resin itself after print (Green) just looks fantastic, and is surprisingly strong and weighty.

Cons (some not of the printer, but due to printing resin):
Finding a well ventilated area.
Cleanup - Just messier than when dealing with a print spool.
Curing process - I thought I would use the sun, but it has rained every day since I got it. I bought a curing station already Smilie.
The software is okay, but already found an issue. Any print I set to 16AA will not slice properly no matter file. 8 and below works fine.
Many sites geared toward resin printing seem to be less giving with free download of stl files. I have never charged for anything I have created.

Sorry for so much info, but I am loving this thing so far.

Quote from WooHoo2You :
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.
This is all great info for peeps looking into 3D printing
