I’ve been using my Anycubic i3 Mega for just over a year now. Here’s my take on the printer:
I’ve upgraded from an M3D micro, which I have used since it came out via their kickstarter. I mainly wanted the bigger build volume.
It worked straight out of the box (minimal assembly required).
After a few months, I’ve started tinkering. First thing to eliminate is the noise. It’s noisy. Like, ridiculously noisy.
Couple of new fans + new stepper motor drivers (~£40 on top of the £250 printer) and the thing is whisper quiet! (main culprit: stepper motor drivers)
Printed a new, circular attachment for the print cooling fan and a new hotend cover to further reduce noise.
I am seriously impressed by what a sub-£300 printer can do.
10/10 would recommend!
