Anycubic Mega Zero Review

Posted on  by admin
It is also possible to pull the filament manually. These operations are explained in the manual. The control possibilities are basic but actually fair enough. Once printing has started, it is also possible to adjust the printing speed, the ventilation speed or the nozzle temperature. Once 3D printer assembled and filament loaded, it is time to print something. The supplied 8GB microSD memory card hosts two small, but not very interesting examples. As usual, I recommend that you download files to convert from free 3D model sites such as Thinksverse, CULTS 3D and My Mini Factory. The conversion software (Slicer) provided by Anycubic is the classic Ultimaker CURA in its version 4.4. The e-manual on the memory card explains how to configure CURA. This is both through manual entry and the use of the supplied profile files, one for PLA and one for TPU printing. The basic tip I give you is to twice level the bed. If you only make one run, the results is wrong as each wheel turn change the others corner. This will then cause the piece to tear off because the first layers will not be perfect. I now come to what must be considered the Anycubic MEGA ZERO’s point of weakness: its tray doesn’t have a heating bed. This is the compromise Anycubic has taken to keep the price down.Is that an overkill? No as an heateing bed is not a requirement for PLA, TPU, HIPS, PETG or wood type filaments printout despite the fact that it reduces the risk of peeling off. In my trials, once the bed was properly leveled, which is critical, I was able to print a variety of 3D models with different filaments. For some models that are a bit long to print, I advise you to use glue stick type UHU/BIC and to apply it at the printing location. This is 100% effective in the case of the Anycubic MEGA ZERO. This trick allowed me to print pieces taking up a large space on the bed like two pairs of COVID-19 goggles at the same time.Regarding smoothness and absence of defects, I’m satisfied. You have to accept not to print too fast, around 50mm/s. Note that there is a mechanism for resuming printing after a power failure. With no heated platform and a slightly rude ergonomics, the Anycubic MEGA ZERO printer is not the 3D printer that beats the competition in the 220 x 220 x 250mm segment. Nevertheless, it is still recommendable to enter the 3D printing field. It is simple to assemble, well made and solid and with a bit of care, it will be able to print beautiful 3D parts. I insist heavily on the levelling of the plate which must be on two cycles. The Anycubic MEGA ZERO 3D PRinter is decent in features and even more so in price. Currently available at less than 150€ at a European warehouse at Gearbest, it is de facto the cheapest reliable 3D printer available at the present time. With the health crisis, the prices of 3D printers have increased due to transport costs. The Alfawise U30 that I recommend in the cheapest prices field is now far away from its €155 seen in some deals. I’m going to look for a discount code to make this Anycubic MEGA ZERO even more attractive. Share your questions and experiences via the forum below. Welcome to Top 3D Blog, your everyday source of quality 3D printing insights. This time we are going to talk about the Anycubic Mega Zero 2.0 — an affordable FDM 3D printer kit that offers impressive build volume, heat bed, sturdy all-metal frame, and a plethora of other useful features to provide a smooth and reliable printing experience. As always, we will be highlighting the most important features, pros, and cons of the printer in question as well as showing you some of the models printed with it. Let’s get started. Anycubic is a Shenzhen-based additive manufacturing company that was founded in 2015 by a duo of childhood friends that decided to follow their hearts and bet it all on an ambitious idea of running a local 3D printing business. With an unflinching resolve to make a real difference in the ever-growing additive manufacturing market, the founders worked as smart and hard as they could, destined to reap the fruits of their labor sooner or later. As of now, the company is considered to be one of the most popular and trusted 3D printer manufacturers in the world. Its lineup consists of more than sixteen FDM and resin 3D printers that offer consistent and high-quality outputs while keeping budget-friendly price tags. The company-made printers and consumables are widely used by hobbyists, experienced makers, and applied in a variety of professional fields. The Anycubic Mega Zero 2.0 is a relatively cheap FDM 3D printer kit that nevertheless provides everything there is to a smooth 3D printing journey. The printer can be employed to create uniquely designed household items, props, figurines, cookie cutters, prototypes, and much more. It would be a fine choice for hobbyists and experienced makers, and will definitely come in handy when dealing with non-stop batch production and other related businesses. Source: Right off the bat, the machine boasts its impressive build volume of 220 x 220 x 250 mm (8.7 x 8.7 x 9.8 in) that allows you to print medium to large-scale models and simultaneously produce dozens of small-scale parts. It can print at a minimum layer height of 100 microns, which is typical for an FDM workhorse of its price. The Mega Zero 2.0 is a classic open-frame Cartesian-style 3D printer that is supplied in a semi-assembled state, meaning that its main units come already assembled and have to be put together manually. While assembly and calibration may take a couple of hours, it will also provide you with the essential understanding of how FDM 3D printers operate, which will be particularly useful in case of later troubleshooting. Besides, the Mega Zero 2.0 is a highly upgradable machine that can be equipped with a ton of noteworthy upgrades to furtherly enhance your experience. Source: Being an improved iteration of the Anycubic Mega Zero, its successor has been equipped with a magnetic heat bed that can heat up to 110°C. This major improvement greatly expands the number of printable materials while also providing better first layer adhesion and facilitating print removal. Let the platform cool down, bend it, and watch your print jobs detach with ease. Despite being equipped with a sturdy all-metal frame that provides reliability during printing and minimizes wobble issues, the Anycubic Mega Zero 2.0 weighs just 7 kg (15 lbs), which makes it pretty easy to carry around. Source: The Anycubic Mega Zero 2.0 features a powerful double gear extrusion mechanism that ensures smooth extrusion and provides stronger torque, making it a perfect tool for printing with flexible filaments and TPU in particular.
