Photon Mono X Setup

Posted on  by admin

So, just like many people, I just got my Mono X. I've got everything set up, but not the wifi. I followed the instructions on the USB stick, created a WIFI.txt with the appropriate info on it but I keep getting an error. It keeps going to: Link AP failed, and then it shows the default anycubic wifi settings (which was obviously not on the wifi.txt file). Any thoughts on what I'm missing? SOLVED: So apparently two things: My USB stick was incorrectly formatted (exFAT) so I had to format it to FAT32, and then I had to 'print' the txt file with wifi settings and that got everything working.

The print quality you get from a resin printer is excellent, but I always thought the resin 3D printers are too small.

When larger format resin 3D printers like the Anycubic Photon Mono X were announced I knew I need to get one.

Slicer alternatives

While the Mono X was not my first option (I was planning to get the ELEGOO Saturn) I thought I would give it a go. Here’s my experience with it.
