The Anycubic Mega X is a personal FDM 3D printer DIY kit. This self-assembly device ships in parts. The main units come already assembled. This means you’ll only have to screw them together following the detailed instruction provided by the manufacturer. The assembly process is quick and easy and will save you a lot of time. Ideal for hobbyists, newbies, and makers, this desktop 3D printer is simple to use and works like a charm right out of the box. It delivers nice and persistent print quality even on long prints. It is the perfect solution to quickly start your 3D printing experience without breaking the bank.
The Anycubic Mega X comes with a build volume of 300 x 300 x 305 mm, which makes it the largest printer of the Anycubic Mega family. Its all-metal frame and sturdy chassis make it stable and reliable. The rock-solid structure allows for consistent print quality over time. The Mega X is equipped with an Ultrabase printing platform. The porous glass bed grants strong printing adhesion and easy print removal. This quality heated platform guarantees excellent performance even after repetitive use. A big ergonomic and convenient-to-grip knob lets you easily level the plate. The powerful extruder makes for smooth material feeding, even when printing with flexible filaments. The integrated filament detection sensor reduces the risk of failures alerting you when the material is about to run out.
The printer has been widely used to produce a selection of 3d models, including miniatures, toys, home decorations, and DIY household items. Keep reading our Anycubic Mega X review.

The Anycubic Mega X comes stock with a single nozzle of 0.4mm in diameter, which gives you the best balance between print speed and detail.
The printer is engineered with an X-axis dual led screw mechanism and a Y-axis dual lead rail design for the platform, which increases the overall bed stability. It also adopts dual Z-endstops, making the printer capable of automatically calibrating the Z-axis in case of need.
Thanks to its powerful extruder, the Anycubic Mega X can smoothly print with PLA, TPU, HIPS and Wood filaments.
The extruder can reach a printing temperature of up to 250°C.

The Mega X features a fast-heating glass heated bed that heats up to 90°C. The textured Ultrabase platform grants optimal printing adhesion, especially when using PLA-type filaments. Your prints will pop off the hotbed with ease.
To ensure high reproducibility, we recommend installing an enclosed print chamber. This way the print quality would not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.
The Anycubic Mega X prints with third-party 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The build area of 11.8 x 11.8 x 12 inches (300 x 300 x 305 mm) lets you produce a wide variety of medium-to-large-sized parts in one go.
The printer can be operated via a fitted user-friendly 3.5-inch color touchscreen. The intuitive interface and the easy-to-navigate menu makes for a seamless 3D printing experience.
The printer works with STL, OBJ, DAE and AMF file formats. The print-ready files can be easily transferred to the printer via an SD card or via data cable (expert users only).
On the official website, you can download the latest Mega X firmware version as well as the latest driver. The printer is compatible with the well-known Cura slicing software, which runs on both Windows and Mac operating systems. This 3D printing software is one of the most complete programs currently available on the market. Simple and intuitive, it allows managing all the printing settings of your 3D models.
