Can't fault this printer; after the setup (pretty easy following the included instructions) it has worked flawlessly ever since. Leveling the base, keeping the base clean (get some isopropyl alcohol) and getting the base temperature and skirt sorted are key but once all that is in place I've had build after build with no issues. There are heaps of 3D models to download online (Thingverse, All3dp etc.) and making your own models is easy too and good education for the kids (I use 123D and Cura) I've added some photos to prove the point :-) In conclusion I can't recommend this 3D printer enough as a starting point into the world of 3D printing
At the very moment I am reviewing this, my i3 mega is 3D printing away. I have printed over 7 models so far and it's perfect, easy use of screen, power failure continue. When I received my package the 1kg PLA was missing but the email team was able to get it to me, a nice lazurite for golden prints is perfect. Overall it's a great printer with great build plate adhesion and quality prints. Definitely a recommended for anyone wanting a first and easy 3D printer The Image shown is Baby Yoda (The Child) from the Mandalorian series at regular size and 210% size which came out amazing
Awesome printer, Tested with ABS, PETG, PLA filaments are works out of the box with no issues, also got the upgrade kit to make it a "S" model. Only issue is a warped heatbed but I think they are sending one out to me (awesome customer services and customer focused company). Anything I would like to see? i. Some changelogs for the firmware and what the update changes and features added if any. ii. If they could put together a auto leveling upgrade I know that would be a big seller. Would I recommend? Ohh Yes, very impressed. By far the best starter 3D printer out there and very cheap off ebay (if you can wait 3 days for it) otherwise amazon :) Things to note: 1. The supplied (website) slicing software is well out of date, get the latest version from the cura website. 2. Get yourself Octoprint and a raspberry pie, upload your profiles to ir and let it auto slice your stl files (also can add a webcam to monitor prints). 3. When your not using filament put it in a vacuum storage bag and get ri of the air in there because filament absorbs moisture out of the air.
The Anycubic i3 Mega is a great 3D printer, especially if you’re new to this field. I did have some initial problems, caused by screws which loosened in transit. Anycubic’s Service department was prompt and very helpful in assisting me in resolving my problem. I have found a great user group on Thingiverse and suggest noobs (like me) use it. I had previous experience 3 years ago with an early RepRap printer and had nothing but trouble. That manufacturer had no after sale service and I quickly sold the unit. Anycubic stands out because they care about their customers and it shows. The anycubic i3 Mega is a very affordable 3D printer with a great reputation and excellent after sales backup. I recommend the Anycubic i3 Mega if you are considering such a purchase.
I love my Anycubic. I work in Kura, which gave me the best settings. If you set the table correctly, you can trust it. 9 hours of printing? No problem. You can go to sleep, Anycubic will do a great job. He designs in Sketch Up and prints various parts of PLA-ABS (mainly RC). I don't think about another printer, Anycubic does everything it needs. I would recommend!
