Why Anycubic Photon Mono M5s

"It's taken some 20 printers and 5 years to do it, but Anycubic has finally moved the needle of the desktop resin 3D printing it helped popularize with the original Photon – the Anycubic Photon Mono M5s is quick, has some smarts, and is a joy to use.", according to Matthew Mensley from All3DP.

Among numerous 3D printing brands, Anycubic took the lead in innovation by launching the first consumer-grade leveling-free resin 3D printer, and that is Anycubic Photon Mono M5s. From its pre-order performance, Photon Mono M5s has successfully become a hit, beloved by many 3D enthusiasts. We are also appreciative of ALL3DP for reviewing this printer and selecting it as the top pick among the best mid-sized resin 3D printers in 2023.

As a mid-sized 3D printer, the M5s adopts a 10.1'' LCD screen with an impressive 12K resolution, and the build volume meets the needs of most makers. Its simple setup allows for out-of-the-box use, and it comes equipped with many intelligent features. For instance, it can automatically detect any hardware issues, monitor resin levels in the vat, and connect seamlessly to Anycubic App via WiFi. In this case, users can indeed reduce resin waste, improve printing success rates, and extend printer lifespan.

One of the key highlights of Photon Mono M5s is its fast printing capability. By using Anycubic High-speed resins and fine-tuning the printing settings, the M5s can achieve an impressive 3 times the speed in its fast printing mode. This particular feature especially brings delight to those who require rapid prototyping for 3D printed objects.
