What does it look like?
As you would expect, the Anycubic Mega Zero has a similar design like the Ender 3 and other printers alike. However, Anycubic has gone slightly differently when it comes to the base. They have a closed-looped design on the bottom of the frame, therefore, makes for stronger rigidity. A good move there!
It also boasts a dual Y-axis system which improves the stability of the platform. Also, levelling is done by way of the large levelling wheels provided at the bottom of the print bed.
Double Gear Extrusion Mechanism
The Anycubic Mega Zero comes with a Double Gear Extrusion Mechanism. As a result, this gives it stronger torque, smoother extruding and also enabled it to be compatible with flexible filaments. For example, TPU.
With the Anycubic Mega Zero, it comes with no heated bed. As a result, this means you wouldn’t be able to put this into an enclosure and print using ABS. However, there is still a multitude of different filaments you can print with, without the need for a heated bed.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any information on what type of board is installed, or even if there are silent stepper drivers. However, with the advances in these 3D printing technologies and cheaper pricing, you would hope that this would start coming as standard. Additionally, does it have Thermal Runaway Protection enabled? We will be reviewing this unit real soon so that you can look forward to a more in-depth interrogation into this printer.
