ANYCUBIC I3 MEGA (Kit) review

The ANYCUBIC I3 MEGA is a DIY 3D printer made by ANYCUBIC, a manufacturer from China. This entry-level 3D printer is based on the famous Prusa I3.

Another budget 3D printer kit from the same manufacturer, the ANYCUBIC I3 Modular, presents relatively similar characteristics but at a slightly cheaper price.

ANYCUBIC I3 MEGA vs. Modular I3

  • Hardware: the 2 3D printer’s design, dimensions and build volume are very similar. However, the I3 MEGA’s frame is completely made out of metal while the Modular I3’s is mainly in acrylic.
  • Interface: the ANYCUBIC Modular I3 has an LCD screen, while the I3 MEGA comes with a touchscreen.
  • Ease of assembly: the I3 Modular comes with pre-assembled parts while the ANYCUBIC I3 MEGA features a “3 steps fast-assembly”. 
  • Other differences: the I3 MEGA boasts 2 additional features. Firstly, a resume printing management function. Secondly, a filament sensor.

I3 MEGA main features

  • Metal frame: for a more resistant hardware.
  • Touchscreen: for a more intuitive user experience.
  • “3 steps fast-assembly”: for an easy and quick installation. Users only need to install 8 screws and connect 3 wires.
  • Resume printing management: to prevent the loss of the 3D printing process in case of interruption, such as a power failure.
  • Filament sensor: to detect and notify the user when the 3D printer is running out of material.
  • Heated print bed: allows for 3D printing with other material than simple PLA, like ABS, HIPS, or Wood. The print bed can heat up to 100°C. The ANYCUBIC Ultrabase platform also makes the 3D printed objects easy to remove.


This affordable 3D printer kit is available on several websites for less than $500 (see on Amazon or Gearbest).
