Getting Started with Your Photon Mono X2: Unboxing and Recommended Parameters

Anycubic Photon Mono X2 is a medium-sized desktop resin printer equipped with a 9.1-inch 4K LCD screen. It is very suitable as a maker tool or a home platform for realizing 3D printing works. In this guide, we'll provide information about it, an unboxing guide and setup process to help Photon Mono X2 users start their 3D printing journey. We will also provide detailed references and instructions for the printing parameters of different resins on Anycubic Photon Mono X2.


Overview of Anycubic Photon Mono X2

Anycubic Photon Mono X2 is equipped with a 4K+ LCD screen with the resolution of 4,096 x 2,560 pixels and the single pixel accuracy of 48μm. As a desktop-level resin printer, it not only restores complex model designs, but its dual linear guides configuration, coupled with POM clearance nut and a vibration-absorbing structure, can also effectively eliminate layer lines and ensure printing stability and accuracy. The printing size of the X2 is 200x196x122mm (HWD), its construction capability is better than ordinary entry-level resin printers. It can meet the batch operations of miniature models and greatly save time on 3D printing projects. For added convenience, the X2 comes with a screen protector, tool set, and offers free, self-developed slicing software, Anycubic Photon Workshop.
