Anycubic I3 MEGA is a 3D printer by the Chinese manufacturer Anycubic. The printer is equipped with a heated platform, touchscreen and one extruder with a 0.4 mm nozzle. The construction area is 210 x 210 x 205 mm. The machine prints with PLA, ABS, HIPS, Wood materials.

According to All3DP, this printer is the “Best 3D Printer Under 300$” (Spring 2019). For a really low price this machine delivers incredible print quality and works with many materials. This printer can resume work after a power outage and has a mechanical filament sensor. Its rigid frame takes care of vibration issues.

To see what the printer is capable of, take a look at the examples below:

The next example: this model of the Hellboy. It was 3D printed and painted after that. The final result looks amazing! The real Hellboy would definitely want to get one if he saw it.

Print quality

The Anycubic i3 Mega can print at 100 microns. The surface of the printed models is not as smooth as with the more expensive printers, but is more than enough for experimenting and household use. Built at 100 microns, this Thanos model took almost 80 hours to print, but it was totally worth it.

The Anycubic i3 Mega has a heated print bed, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials. In the picture below you can see a successful ABS print:

To ensure high reproducibility, we recommend installing an enclosed print chamber. This way the print quality will not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.
