What Resin Can I Use with the Anycubic Photon Mono X?

An Affordable, Large-Format, 4K High-Resolution Resin 3D Printer

Software: ANYCUBIC Photon workshop. I have a small issue with USB-Sticks for the Photon-S. The Original 4Gb Stick works fine. I suppose the original is an USB2 Stick. I want to have a stick with both 2 Connectors (USB-A & USB-C), because my main Computer has only USB-C Connectors.

I got a Sandisk "Ultra Dual Drive Luxe" 32Gb and the USB-A Connector has a blue indication that it is USB3.

What Comes with the Anycubic Photon Mono X Resin 3D printer?

I reformat the USB-Stick as FAT32. /dev/disk3 (external, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *30.8 GB disk3 1: DOS_FAT_32 PHOTON-S 30.8 GB disk3s1.

When I insert it in a running Photon-S the LCD is blocked! When I switch the Photon-S Off & On, the Printer gives a Beep Tone which doesn't stop? What is wrong?- Doesn't the Photon-S doesn't Support 32Gb Size?- Doesn't the Photon-S doesn't Support USB3 Size? It is slightly difficult the get old fashioned USB-Stick with USB2 an small sizes (e.g.

I want really an USB Stick with USBA for the 3D Printer and USB-C for my MacBook Pro. I don't want to use extra USB Docks!!! Further I don't trust to reformat the original Drive.

Anycubic Photon Mono X 3D Printer Technical Specifications

It has a very cryptic "Chinese Name" ?!? I don't want to lose the connection to my printer.

It looks that I am not the only person with such an issue;https://www.reddit.com/r/AnycubicPhoton … ts_do_not/.

While this works quite well, I will surely upgrade the build plate with a removable magnetic spring steel sheet which will make removing models a lot easier.

Matrix UV Light

The Matrix UV light source is quite powerful, and Anycubic recommends setting the power to ~80% for matte resin, and ~50% for transparent resin.
I’m not sure why this is the recommended setting, but my guess is for prolonging the LED life and to keep the LEDs from overheating.

Bad airflow design

What I don’t really like about the Anycubic Photon X is the fan noise. There are four 8015 mm fans which produce a bit more noise than I was expecting. It’s much noisier compared to the Phrozen Sonic Mini or Creality LD-002R.

The back side fans are set to pull cold air inside the electronics section, while the bottom fans are set to expel hot air. In my opinion, this is not the most fortunate airflow design and I think they should be inverted.

The bottom fans should pull cold air from outside the enclosure and blow it over the LED heatsink while the side fans should expel the hot air through the back of the machine. This way, you always get cool air over the heatsink probably lowering the temperature and allowing for less fan noise without overheating.

In the future I will probably do some modifications to the airflow of the Mono X, with more silent fans, but this will be covered in another article.

Fast print speed

As previously mentioned, the print speed of the Anycubic Photon Mono X is one of the fastest you can get right now in the world of resin printers. Depending on the layer height and resin type, you can print models in around 2 seconds / layer.

During my testing, I used 100% power which allowed for fast prints with ~1.5-1.8 seconds / layer at 50 microns. A well-tuned printing profile should allow for up to 60mm/h which is impressive.

Aluminum resin vat

The resin vat is made from anodized aluminum, and it has a printed marking for the max resin volume. It can take about 500ml of resin.

On the top left corner, there’s also a small lip that should help with pouring the resin out of the vat, but in real life it doesn’t really work as intended, so take the necessary precautions when you change resins.

The FEP sheet can be easily replaced after removing the 14 screws underneath the vat. I was hoping to get at least a spare FEP sheet to have that at hand when needing to replace it, but there’s no spares included with the Photon Mono X. I recommend you order a few spare sheets in advance to have them ready when the time comes.

Wi-Fi capabilities with the Anycubic Remote Control App

In the right side, behind the vat, you can see there’s a small antenna. This is the Wi-Fi antenna used for connecting the printer to your network.

After you connect the printer to Wi-Fi, you will be able to monitor the Mono X remotely, with the Anycubic Remote Control App on your smartphone.

Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi capabilities are quite limited and I’m sure a lot of people would have liked to be able to wirelessly transfer models to the printer and start jobs remotely, but this is currently not possible.

How to connect the Mono X to Wi-Fi?

There’s no option to manually connect to Wi-Fi from the screen interface. Instead, you need to do the following:

  1. Create a .txt document called WIFI.txt

2. Edit the file with your Wi-Fi name and password, as shown below

3. Copy the WIFI.txt file to a USB drive and “print” the file

4. Check the IP under System-> Info

Anycubic Smartphone App

As previously mentioned, the Anycubic Photon Mono X has Wi-Fi capabilities which allow you to remotely monitor your resin prints.

Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi capabilities don’t allow wireless transfer of the files to your printer which is a bummer. As a workaround, you could purchase a Wi-Fi USB Drive, but I haven’t tested one yet, to confirm that this works.

Slicer alternatives

The Anycubic Photon Mono X can be used with the Anycubic Workshop slicer which is the recommended solution from Anycubic.

Fortunately, Chitubox and Lychee Slicer also have support for the Mono X and I strongly recommend using one of these slicers because they offer more functionality.

All my prints were sliced with Lychee Slicer which is currently my favorite slicer for resin printing. There’s a paid version of this slicer which offers more functionality, but I was quite happy with the free version.

The included profile is tuned well, and I made just a few alterations.

Power consumption

Idle power draw is around 8W. When the printer has the LEDs on to cure the resin layers, power consumption is about 75W.

All these measurements were taken with a Blitzwolf smart power socket which indicates the power draw, and it can also be used for remotely powering on and off the printer.

Anycubic Photon Mono X Noise Levels

To better evaluate the noise levels of the Anycubic Photon Mono X, I took this video which should help you understand how noisy it is, but it is not an accurate way of measuring noise levels.

As previously mentioned, the cooling fans are a bit noisy, but I can’t say they are annoying. You could use the machine in an office without issue, but I would not recommend this because of the resin smell.

Test prints on Anycubic Photon Mono X

High-Gryphkin

This was the first printed model on the Anycubic Photon Mono X. I started with something small just to make sure everything is working well.
I sliced the model with Lychee slicer and started printing. As you can see, print quality is great and you can get quite a bit of detail from the 4K screen even for miniatures.

  • Material:Phrozen Aqua Green Resin
  • Layer Height: 0.05mm
  • Hollowed: Yes
  • Supports: Yes

Pinky

Next, I had the “Pinky and the Brain” model from Inspyre3D’s patreon which was waiting to be printed for a few weeks. I filled the vat with some white resin from Anycubic and started the print.

This model was printed without hollowing it, and it came out great. But for some reason, there is a section behind the head which wasn’t printed. I checked the sliced model and it seems that there was an issue during slicing which caused it. Not really a printer issue.

  • Material:Anycubic Basic White Resin
  • Layer Height: 0.05mm
  • Hollowed: No
  • Supports: Yes

Brain

Brain was printed with the same settings and resin, but this time I hollowed the model to save some resin. I was able to hide the holes behind the model where you wouldn’t see them when assembled.

The same great print quality, but as you can see for both models, I over cured them, and this make the models turn brown-ish on some parts. My mistake. I cured them for ~5 minutes each in the Phrozen Cure V2.

  • Material:Anycubic Basic White Resin
  • Layer Height: 0.05mm
  • Hollowed: Yes
  • Supports: Yes

Barbarian Chieftain

Finally, with the leftover resin I had in the vat, I printed the Barbarian chieftain at 200%. It came out great, with lots of detail, but because of the resin color it’s hard to take some good photos of it.

Even though I cured this for ~3 minutes, the model took some of that brown burnt look so it might be a “feature” of this white Anycubic Basic resin.

  • Material:Anycubic Basic White Resin
  • Layer Height: 0.05mm
  • Hollowed: No
  • Supports: Yes

Conclusions: Is the Anycubic Photon Mono X worth it?

If you are looking for a large format resin 3D printer, then the Anycubic Photon Mono X is a great machine. It’s not the cheapest printer available with this build volume, but considering the lack of stocks for other alternatives, the price is fair.

I haven’t tested other large format resin printers yet, but the Mono X performed admirably during my time with it, and I am sure others will be quite happy with it. I still need to do a bit more testing with other resins and models and I will update this review, but the results are good enough out of the box to form an opinion.

The build quality is good, and the print quality is excellent so I can recommend the Anycubic Photon Mono X without reservations. If you models are properly sliced, then the Mono X will probably print them without any issues. It’s also one of the fastest printers currently available on the market allowing you to speed up your production.

Before purchasing one, I strongly recommend checking out the Anycubic Photon Mono X Facebook Group for experiences from other users. I haven’t encountered any issues during my time with the printer, but it’s always good to know what to expect and what other users think about it.
