Anycubic Photon Ultra is a groundbreaking consumer DLP 3D printer. Anycubic co-engineered with Texas Instruments to introduce Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology into the desktop 3D printer industry.
DLP Projector can project a beam of higher uniformity, and the light uniformity of the forming surface is greater than 90%. With an LCD printer, the light source is always on, which gives light leaks, even on dark pixels.
Thanks to DLP technology, Anycubic Photon Ultra’s light source system does not need to be replaced as often as an LCD 3D printer and has a life span of over 20,000 hours, 10 times longer than the 2,000 hours for LCD monochrome screens.
The rated power of Photon Ultra is as low as 12W, which is about the power of a normal light bulb and only 1/5 of the 60W power of an LCD 3D printer
The Ultra’s blazing-fast optics engine speeds up the printing process to just 1.5 seconds per layer, 1/5 of the original Photon of 8 seconds per layer. The print speed is up to 6cm per hour, three times faster than the original Photon of 2cm per hour.
DLP printers release less heat due to their low power consumption. The heat dissipates through a radiator without containing a cooling fan to ensure a whisper-quiet printing environment for users.
