As far as low-cost desktop DLP 3D printers go, the new Anycubic Photon DLP 3D Printer has emerged as one of the most appealing options on the market. Anycubic has a reputation for building reliable and affordable printers like the Anycubic i3 Mega FDM 3D printer. When it comes to the price, the Anycubic Photon is no exception – it’s one of the cheapest DLP 3D printers out there.

The Anycubic Photon DLP 3D printer is generating some serious buzz across the community, and for good reason. Priced right around $450, this machine is a potential game-changer for the SLA/DLP desktop 3D printing sector. But talk is cheap; we wanted to see this 3D printer in action.

So let's take a dive into this resin-based 3D printer (not literally, that would be a health hazard) and find out how whether the Anycubic Photon DLP 3D printer is worth the hype or not.
