It costs about $300, delivers quality prints, and its popularity is skyrocketing. Check out our Anycubic i3 Mega review to learn more about one of the best affordable 3D printers.

In 2018, affordable 3D printers have hit a sweet spot with consumers worldwide. And with the Anycubic i3 Mega, the segment of 3D printers kits under $300 has a new winner.


As of Summer 2018, the Anycubic i3 Mega is the best 3D printer under $300 you can buy. Overall, we were impressed with the ease of use and the quality this little printer delivered.

After some initial woes (more below), we were able to get excellent prints from the Anycubic i3 Mega. Also, it handled PLA and PET filaments with ease.

Currently, it is the go-to PLA printer at All3DP. Thanks to the Anycubic Ultrabase print bed, the prints stick nicely during printing and can be plucked off the build plate with ease. If you start tweaking a bit and go for the “extra fine” print quality, the results are simply stunning. We especially liked the layer quality with regular PLA.

In the last months, the price for the machine has come down by roughly a third.

If you can spend more money, you should have a look at the Prusa i3 MK3, which is currently the Best 3D Printer in 2018. If you are looking for an alternative in the same price range, you should consider the Monoprice Maker Select V2, which also has some nice tricks up its sleeve.

But overall: If you choose to buy it, we are sure you’ll like the Anycubic i3 Mega as much as we do.

The Anycubic i3 Mega surfaced in June 2017 2018 – since then, it has developed a dedicated base of followers. It hasn’t been officially revised yet (so there’s no “version 2”). Also, the specifications of the printer haven’t changed over the years.

The specifications of the Anycubic i3 Mega read very similarly to other low-cost 3D printers.
