Anycubic Photon Not Reading Files

Posted on  by admin

Posted by2 years ago. Like the title says, I just received a Anycubic Photon. This is my first 3d printer and I know going resin is a big step to take into 3d printing, but quality is what I was after. I just unboxed it, got everything else set up and was ready to print the first test print just to see how it did, but the printer is not reading anything that came on the USB drive right out of the box. I tried downloading firmware updates and getting the printer to update but that didn't work.

I put the default print on a different USB drive and it still isn't reading anything. When I plug the USB drives in, it lights up at first and then does nothing. I also plug it in when the power is off and then start it up hoping it will read but still, nothing. All USB drives were in FAT32 format, but I did try one in NTFS - all nada. Any ideas on what I can try? It’s not a shocking divulgence that Resin 3D printing gives astonishing print quality and objective over FDM.

There’s a slight assumption to assimilate data for the people who have never used an SLA/DLP 3D printer, but this obstacle is vanquished quickly in light of the undeniable documentation, working on the web network, and other online resources.

  1. The Anycubic Photon DLP 3D Printer has emerged as the most captivating option accessible.

  2. Anycubic has picked up a reputation for building strong and user-friendly printers like the Anycubic i3 Mega FDM 3D printer.

  3. With respect to the worth, the Anycubic Photon is no exception – it’s undoubdtedly the most affordable DLP 3D printers out there.

  6. Symptoms*.photon cut document arranged in anycubic/chitu slicer v1.3.6 or Chitubox isn’t identified or won’t print on a unique Photon printer.

Check the firmware version of the printer, if it shows v3.4.x, at that point, you can be sure that your printer is not a unique Photon.

There are other Photon printers, which are called a Fauxton.
