Building off the success of the i3 Mega, the Chinese manufacturer Anycubic recently rolled out the new and improved Anycubic Mega-S. Like its predeccessor, this upgraded model still has a 210 x 210 x 205 mm build volume and the beloved Anycubic Ultrabase, a heated bed that ensures that the prints stick to the bed and pluck right off after the job is done.
Priced around $359, the Anycubic Mega-S costs slightly more than the original Anycubic i3 Mega. So there has to be at least a few upgrades integrated into the latest model, right? Correct.
Anycubic has added some features that were missing from its flagship machine, such as power recovery loss and filament run-out detection. The manufacturer has also added a suspended spool holder to the side of the 3D printer, while also changing the placement of the filament sensor to improve usability.
According to the manufacturer, the extruder on the Anycubic Mega-S has been upgraded to be more compatible with flexible filaments like TPU. So, if you want to pay a little extra to obtain some extra features and improved material compatibility, the Mega-S might be a preferable option over the original i3 Mega.
