About my 3D printer

 I have the Anycubic mega zero 2.0 3D printer. In my honest opinion, I really like the printer!

In this image, I had just finished a print on my printer and was so lucky I didn’t run out of filament!

   - FDM printer: fused filament fabrication or fused deposition modeling, is a 3D printing process. The process is when a thermoplastic material filament is used continuously. 


The large spool of filament is fed through the heated and moving extruder to be deposited on the growing print. 


This is an example of one of my filament rolls


Extruder: this part of the 3D printer is responsible for drawing in, melting and pushing out the filament. ‘A fancy hot glue gun’ 

(This printer is a single extruder)


The melted filament then goes through the printer ‘head’: the hot-end. 


   - Magnetic printing hot bed: a magnetic sticker is used rather than paper or glue on the hot bed. It can be removed and bent to remove prints and reused again. The levelling of the bed has 4 positions. 


   - The printing build size area is 220mm x 220mm x 250mm. I find this is a good printing area as the majority of prints are smaller, I haven’t really gotten in large prints yet!



After using the Anycubic mega zero 2.0 printer for about a year now, I can say that I really like it! I’ve found that all printing problems have been a problem on my end rather than the fault of the machine lol. Levelling is as simple as can be and assembling the printer wasn’t too difficult although not easy. I would definitely recommend this machine. 


If you’re planning on using this machine, learn from my mistake: when slicing, if using cura, make your own printer profile. Select the Anycubic mega zero printer then change the dimensions to length + width: 220mm and height to: 250mm
