There’s a new build plate designed especially for the Photon M3 that improves adhesion and helps ensure better print success, important for the high-speed printing offered by the device which Anycubic claims is at least thirty minutes faster than competitive products on the market (when printing a 12 cm detailed test figurine).
The LCD screen and lighting system are also stand-out areas, aiding in the super-clear edges and high definition of the prints.

If you need even more power in your resin 3d Printer, you can opt for the utterly insane Photon M3 Max, which takes Anycubic’s new design to a whole new plane of existence with **7K resolution printing at a huge build volume (298×164×300 mm and 498.5 ounces (ca. 19 kg)). This puppy can boast a maximum printing speed of 60 mm per hour, which is frankly insane.
For either of these, you’ll still want to grab one of the wash and cure machines Anycubric offers, which will take away all the strain and mess of cleaning up after resin-based prints (and ensuring that those prints turn out at their highest=possible quality).
Anycubic’s Kobra Max 3D printer features a build volume of 17.7 × 15.7 × 15.7 inches, enabling for some wonderfully large-scale projects at a printing volume of 19.02 gallons. For those of us who are excited by the prospect of finally printing a full-size Mando helmet from our favorite Star Wars series, this is a dream come true (cosplayers can get pretty inventive with printing costumes, but being able to print large pieces whole is a game-changer).

The Kobra Max also comes with Anycubic’s LeviQ technology to provide automatic leveling, something that no 3D printing enthusiast can be without. As someone who started out their 3D print journey on an un-modded Ender 3 v2, I can safely say that manually leveling your print bed is the worst, especially because you’ll never be able to do as good a job as an automatic system—or keep the bed level during the prints.
Anycubic’s put all their usual great features into this one, but it’s really all about the build size here.
Anycubic is clearly one of the best 3D printer manufacturers around today, and that they’re both continuing to innovate and provide even better products (that take into account customer feedback), as well as offer many options for any budget and need, means that they’re going to be around for a long time to come.
While the Ender remains my favorite open-source printer, and will likely stick around as the hobby-printer of choice, I could easily see the Anycubic becoming a “household name”.
I’m going to be reviewing one of the new printers soon and will be sure to write a review of it as soon as I’ve had the chance to test it thoroughly. But, if what I’ve read from others and seen from the Anycubic people themselves is any bet, Anycubic is going to become my new favorite brand.
