Anycubic has quickly risen as a favorite among 3D printing enthusiasts since its inception in China in 2015. Their mission? Bringing 3D printing within the reach of everyday consumers without compromising on quality. They’re all about giving value.
And, if you’re in the market for a grand-sized printer, well, you’re in for a treat! Standing tall at just over a meter and spanning half a meter wide, weighing around 25KG, the Anycubic Predator Delta Kossel is definitely hard to miss.
This isn’t just any printer. It boasts a mammoth build size of 370 x 370 x 455 mm, making it stand out even amidst its peers. A single extruder 1.75mm FDM printer, it comes loaded with features that any techie, like me, Carolina, would adore.
People often marvel at how this printer effortlessly stands out from its competition. Not just by its size, but by the superior quality and features it offers at such an attractive price point.
Superbase Pro – Crystal Glass Platform
The printing surface provides stellar grip, ensuring ease when you’re peeling off your projects. Its special microporous coating guarantees reliable adhesion, even surface, and efficient heat distribution. And once your creation is ready, just give it some cooling time, and voila, it’s ready for showtime!
The machine auto-detects 37 unique points on its surface to adjust and offset the nozzle’s height. Forget about manual calibrations and trust this feature to give you impeccable prints. The real-time compensation ensures that your print remains consistent.
Power Outage Resume Capability
We all dread those untimely power interruptions, especially during a lengthy print. But fear not! One click and you’re back on track from where you left. It’s about ensuring that your long hours aren’t wasted.
Filament Monitoring System
Given the printer’s size, you can easily run out of filament. But thanks to its intuitive filament sensor, it automatically halts when you’re out, letting you reload and carry on.
User-friendly Touch Interface
The vibrant and responsive touch screen ensures that even the least tech-savvy folks can navigate it with ease. It’s designed for a seamless user experience.
Robust Metal Structure & Easy-to-Assemble Units
Designed thoughtfully, the printer allows for quick assembly. Its solid build guarantees minimal tremors during prints, which in turn guarantees quality.
Titan-inspired Bowden ‘Soaring’ Feeder
Perfect for flexible filaments, this feeder ensures precision and reduces stringing. Plus, its compatibility ranges from PLA and ABS to TPU.
V6 Nozzle Replica
This is an E3D nozzle lookalike. If PLA is your go-to, this is perfect. But for those looking to explore, you might consider some tweaks.
Trigonic 32-Bit Processing Unit
A powerhouse in its own right, this ensures that the printer functions smoothly, with features like the resume capability being its brainchild.
Rapid Heat Bed – 24V 360W
Ensures your materials stay perfect throughout the printing process, heating up quickly to an optimal 100°C.
On-the-Go Belt Tightening Mechanism
With a built-in belt tensioner, you don’t have to fuss with springs anymore. These belts are simple yet effective, ensuring consistent prints.
