Anycubic Photon Mono X SLA 3D Printer Review!

One of the most exciting developments in resin 3D printing is the use of monochrome LCD panels for masking the UV curing process. Norm tests and reviews the Anycubic Photon Mono X, which uses a 9-inch 4K resolution mono LCD for a large build volume and high-fidelity prints at 3 to 4 times the speed of previous mSLA printers. Here’s a rundown of how the Mono X works and our workflow for slicing models as well as the cleanup process using the wash and cure station.
