The Anycubic Mega SE is another iteration in the successful lineup of personal FDM 3D printer kits used by hobbyists and makers. The model features quite a decent build volume and a double gear extrusion mechanism with Capricorn PTFE tube for smoother and more accurate filament guiding. The machine was obviously designed with the end-user in mind as it offers a number of features improving the experience.
The Anycubic Mega SE is equipped with quiet TMC2208 stepper drivers to significantly reduce noise during the printing process. It boasts a fast-heated print bed with the Ultrabase build surface to enhance adhesion and facilitate print removal. The enlarged leveling knobs make for easier and more convenient bed calibration. The power loss recovery function will save your time and filament. In addition, the printer features a quick assembly, coming in just a few pieces with no hassle in store.
The Mega SE is great for entry-level users and hobbyists who want a relatively large build volume coupled with good performance and excellent usability for a very comfortable price. The device can be used to produce household items, accessories, prototypes, tabletop models, souvenirs, props, etc.
The Anycubic Mega SE is an FFF/FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 100 microns. The surface finish is not as smooth as you get with more expensive printers but is more than enough for prototyping and household use.
The printer is equipped with a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail.
The print head runs on rails, which makes printing consistent, fast, and precise. Yet, there may be some play in the printer body since this is a self-assembly kit.
The Anycubic Mega SE is compatible with a variety of materials, including PLA, TPU, ABS, HIPS, PETG, Wood, and other 1.75 mm filaments.
The printer’s extruder is equipped with an upgraded fan for printing with PLA-type materials. The fan cools the model during printing, which reduces warping, stringing, and other issues.
The Mega SE has a heated print bed, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials. It is characterized by fast heat-up, being capable of reaching 100 °C in about 5 minutes.
To ensure high reproducibility, we recommend installing an enclosed build chamber. This way the print quality would not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.
The build area of the machine is 8.6 x 8.6 x 9.8 inches (220 x 220 x 250 mm), which makes it possible to print a medium-sized model or several smaller ones in a single session. Larger objects can be printed in parts and then assembled using acetone (for ABS) or glue (for PLA).
The Anycubic Mega SE can be controlled from a PC via a tethered USB cable or a built-in screen using a rotary knob, with an easy-to-navigate interface and straightforward options.
Apart from USB, the device features SD card connectivity, making for an effortless standalone operation.
The printer can be used with Ultimaker Cura, Replicator G, and other popular slicers. It works with STL, OBJ, AMF, and DAE file formats. The printer software runs on Windows, macOS, and Linux operating systems.
For some items, package content may change. In case of any questions, please get in touch.
The Anycubic Mega SE is available in black. Its stylish look makes it ideal for many personal applications.
The printer dimensions are 19.9 x 17 x 23.9 inches (505 x 431 x 607 mm). It weighs 15.4 lb (7 kg). The spool is mounted on top of the gantry.
The price for the Anycubic Mega SE is $249.00, which is reasonable considering its functionality.
