Purchased at Christmas and I love this printer. There have been some minor issues but Anycubic has been responsive. Would definitely purchase again. I looked hard at Ender machines, not easy to assemble, all sorts of upgrades the i3 did not need. i3 was easy to assemble and I was up and printing quickly. Waiting for the Chrion to go on sale!
This is my 1st 3d printer and I love it. It hasn't stopped printing since I put it together (which was super easy) I bought Anycubic filament also. The white snagged 20+ times and I eventually threw it in the trash. The black, blue and red seem to be fine and not snaggy. As to the printer, it's amazing. Had a T0 censor problem because I was using a third party slicer and once I set the fan to 30% it never happened again. Anyone that suggests it's a 'loose wire' is an idiot. I plan on buying another one of these. The only knock against this printer is that it's super loud. But for the price, it's totally worth it. I use the IceSL slicer and it works great. The quality of the prints rival more expensive machines.
I first bought a used I3 Mega and I love it!! I started making things for other people and sold some of it. I received so many jobs that 1 printer was not enough. So I decided to buy a second printer and the Mega S is most like the I3 Mega so I now have a Mega S too. I am very satisfied with the print quality of both printers. Now they are both printing at the same time.
I bought the mega-s and am very happy with the printer, especially for the price point. I have a stable of printers to work with including 2 Prusas. My first impression is the Prusa is definitely not worth 4x the price of the Mega S. It’s a very well built machine. I have smoked a hot end already, and clog a lot of nozzles, but that’s probably my own learning curve.
I will start off by saying that I am fairly new to 3d printing. I bought my daughter a Da Vinci Jr. 1.0 Pro for Christmas 2018 and found myself asking her if I could use it more and more, lol. She finally told me it was time to get my own! I did quite a bit of research and it came down to the i3 Mega S or an Ender 3 and I am extremely happy I went with the i3 Mega S! First off, this thing is built like a tank!! It is solid and very well built. It works right out of the box and even if you take your time you can be printing in under an hour (sooner if you don't have OCD and an engineering background). There is a large and growing community of i3 Mega owners who are amazing and are more than happy to help you with tips, tweaks and modifications and the customer support got back to me within a day when I had a couple of questions (no problems of any kind, just the kind of questions an engineer with OCD would ask, lol). You can keep it stock or you can modify the heck out of it, either way it is a fantastic yet affordable 3d printer. Even though I have heavily modified mine over that last few months that I have had it, none of the mods were necessary (I just love modifying things, lol). I highly recommend the Anycubic i3 Mega S!!!
Llevo unos meses con la Mega-S, como mi primera impresora, y estoy muy contento con los resultados. Una relación calidad/precio muy aceptable. Mi hermano tiene una impresora con un precio mucho más elevado y está sorprendido con la calidad de mis impresiones. Además, hasta el momento el soporte técnico responde con agilidad, no sólo a las consultas. Tuve un problema con el sensor de temperatura de la cama caliente y me enviaron directamente una nueva. Hasta la fecha, perfecto!
