The Chinese manufacturer of 3D printers – Anycubic, presented two new devices, including one for less than $200. The first of the two 3D printers is Anycubic Photon D2 printing from light-curable resins, equipped with a characteristic blue UV shield and a working area of ​​130 x 73 x 165 mm. The second novelty is working in FFF technology and is called Kobra Go – Anycubic set the pre-sale price of this 3D printer at just $ 89, making it one of the cheapest desktop devices on the market. The target price for the Kobra Go is $209 direct selling through Anycubic and $219 through Amazon.

Photon D2 has been equipped with a DLP projector, which provides much higher precision in exposing the resin and is also the first photopolymer 3D printer in Anycubic’s offer that does not use an LCD screen. As a result, the Photon D2 provides high accuracy and resolution as well as consumes a small amount of energy as the light flows directly into the resin and does not have to pass through the LCD mask. Anycubic declares that projector lamps will last about 20,000 hours of use, which is much more than LCD screens. The price of the 3D printer was set at $679.

Kobra GO is a 3D printer that prints in the FFF technology. Anycubic supplies the device in the form of a complete assembly kit, which helps to achieve a really low price of around $200. At the same time, the Kobra Go includes a number of features often found in other, more expensive devices, including:

  • working area at the level of 220 x 220 x 250 mm
  • Bowden type extruder to work with filament with a diameter of 1.75 mm
  • brass printhead with a diameter of 0.4 mm
  • automated work table leveling system using LeviQ Anycubic technology
  • magnetically mounted working plate made of spring steel covered with PEI.

The spring steel plate allows easy removal of the print by bending it, which causes the rigid print to peel off. This approach is becoming the standard method for amateur and desktop FFF 3D printers. All of the above functions make 3D printing much easier and available to novice users who will have the opportunity to purchase their first 3D printer at an even lower price than before.
