Super excited to share my thoughts on the Anycubic Photon DLP 3D printer. DLP or “Digital Light Processing” is a technology nothing
like “Fused Filament Fabrication” or FDM. Every single 3D printer I have previously been working with have been FDM-based, for example the Creality CR-10 or the TEVO Tornado. But Anycubic have released a DLP 3D printer that allows to print with MUCH more detail!

Gearbest is currently celebrating their 4th anniversary where you might find some good deals on 3D printers: https://goo.gl/HpfnbN
The Photon is currently listed at $500-600 which is significantly cheaper than SLA printers, with the most affordable SLA currently listed att more than $1200. Even though DLP might not have as good quality as SLA-based printers, it’s still far superior than FDM printers. Considering the much lower price of DLP’s, it’s a great machine that impressed me immensely!
The build volume is 120x68x150mm, that limits us to make circular objects of a maximum 68mm diameter, that is not great. However, the 150mm Z-axis height really makes you able to printer fairly tall models considering the technology.
