The Anycubic i3 Mega is a solid, metal-framed 3D printer that comes mostly assembled. Assembly is easy and takes only a few minutes. It has a large build envelope (210 x 210 x 205 mm, or 8.3 x 8.3 x 8.1 inches). The Anycubic i3 Mega also includes some nice advanced features, including:
- 3.5 inch touch-screen interface
- Semi-automatic, intelligent bed leveling
- Filament outage detection with automatic pause when filament runs out and ability to resume after re-load
- Auto-resume of printing following a power failure
The device is capable of producing high quality prints, thanks to the stable construction and fine layer resolution down to 0.05 mm. It supports multiple filament materials, including PLA, ABS, High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) and wood.
