The Anycubic Photon S is an LCD-based UV resin professional 3D printer. It is an upgraded version of the original Photon. Some hardware and software improvements make it more accurate and comfortable to operate. A charcoal air filter, an enhanced UV LED, and more stability are just some of its upgrades. This capable machine is sold at a very convenient price. It’s successfully used in prototyping and small-scale manufacturing. For example, it was used to print miniatures, jewels, and art designs. Read on for a full review.
The Photon S is capable of handling fine details and intricate geometries. One user printed a set of rings and earrings in purple resin. This how they looked like before supports were removed.

The results are pretty good and highly accurate even for small prints. Just look at these tiny, well-defined 3D models.

The Anycubic Photon S is a resin 3D printer that can print layers at 25 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. Unlike its predecessor, the Photon S is equipped with a Z-axis Dual Linear Rail. This system improves the stability of the printer reducing Z-wobble issues. It also contributes to better print results. The pause and print option gives you the possibility to check the printing status every now and then.

The printer is controlled via an improved, user-friendly touchscreen. A new GUI with larger buttons and a clear menu structure streamlines the navigation.
The whole 3D printing process is handled offline via a USB stick.
The printer software, Photon Workshop, is exceedingly easy-to-use and user-friendly. It works with 3D models saved as the proprietary .photons format. The slicer is available for Windows and Mac OS.
Anycubic Photon S is available in either black or white colors. Its stylish look and its accuracy make it ideal to use in a variety of fields, including jewelry, dentistry, and more.
The printer dimensions are 8.6 x 7.9 x 15.7 inches (220 x 200 x 400 mm). It weighs 5.9 kg.
The price of the Anycubic Photon S is $379.00, which is reasonable considering its functionality and printing quality.
