Anycubic launches its new Kobra- and Photon M3-series 3D printers
Anycubic touts its latest 3D printers as improved in various ways, the amount of physical space in which to print included. They also feature their own super-clear monochrome LCD screens, topping out at the 13.6-inch 7K panel in the Photon M3 Max. This device, its M3 siblings and Kobra cousins also boast their OEM's own LeviQ 25-point auto bed-leveling as a calibration system.
The company pitches the Photon M3 (which, as its name suggests, comes from a new UV-resin-compatible series with a large gold-ish shield apiece) as the most beginner-friendly of the bunch. It has a 18.0x16.4x10.2cm build volume and is rated as extra-precise in generating edges and corners.
It is also the cheapest at US$299 - then again, this is also where the Kobra starts. It is of the spring-steel-sheet platform type, and also features an integrated direct extruder, which, as Anycubic insists, will simplify and ensure extrusion and retraction.
The Kobra Max is its $539 variant with a 45x40x40cm build volume. The Photons M3 Plus and Max, on the other hand, feature the new Anycubic LighTurbo matrix light source and up to 30.0x29.8x16.4cm build-volumes. They also upgrade to the OEM's latest Auto Resin Filler to alleviate mid-print level anxiety. They are now priced at $699 and $1,099 respectively
Finally, Anycubic has also announced the new Water-Wash Resin+, touted as more economical and eco-friendly than other such supplies. It supports cleaning without the need for isopropyl alcohol and is apparently relatively low on smell.
