With the Mega Pro*, Anycubic has – once again – provided a new bright shining star in the 3D printer cosmos. The company has launched this model on the market simultaneously with its fifth anniversary. 

This is a two-in-one device. The Mega Pro can 3D print and also laser engrave – an extremely useful combination.

But what can the Mega Pro do, what technical data does it have, and what is the price-performance ratio like? We took a close look at the 3D printer and summarized our impressions in a detailed review for you.

Contents

Design

In terms of design, the Anycubic Mega Pro doesn’t look like it came from outer space, but rather quite classic. It is equipped with a three-axis design, which is a classic among 3D printers. The print base moves back and forth along the Y-axis and the print head is guided upwards via the X- and Z-axes.

The Mega Pro thus comes with a quite slim front profile, which makes it easier to position it on a work surface or even a desk. Anycubic’s model also follows the trend of closed electronics, so all cables, motors and control boards are neatly stowed away. In terms of functionality, the Mega Pro also shows the whole evolution that 3D printers have been going through for years. Navigation is controlled by a practical and reliable touchscreen.

The design of the Anycubic Mega Pro is overall well-thought-out and also stable. The latter is especially guaranteed by the sturdy metal frame. The position of the filament spools and the power connector also suggest that the developers have put some thought into it and learned from older models. However, the USB port and the card slot are a bit fiddly to reach.

Compared to the competition, the Mega Pro stands out with several design updates that help with maintenance and adjustment. These include, for example, large adjustment wheels that are located under the print bed and allow for easy leveling of the bed.

Features

The Mega Pro comes with a very big plus that stands out: It has a laser engraver. This model allows you to enter the world of multifunctional 3D printers without having to dig deep into your pockets – for example, with a Snapmaker or a Creality CP-01*.

Anycubic’s model is especially suitable for engraving standard materials like wood, leather and paper. It has the great advantage that you don’t have to combine a 3D printer – which has the Mega Pro’s capabilities – with a laser engraver. Moreover, this is not the only useful feature that the printer brings. Therefore, it is an ingenious addition to many hobbyists and professionals alike.

In the following, we have briefly summarized all the features of the Anycubic Mega Pro that are worth mentioning.

Laser Engraver

First things first. We’ll start – of course – with the laser engraver, which makes the Mega Pro a true multifunction printer. It’s no secret that the most fascinating feature of the device is that it can combine 3D printing with laser engraving. 

On the market, the Mega Pro is one of the very few models that actually combines both functions. The previous models have been significantly more expensive than the Mega Pro and have mostly included the CNC cutting function in addition to laser engraving and 3D printing. This is the case with the Snapmaker and the Creality CP-01*, for example, which play in a completely different league because of this function and the price – and not necessarily a higher one.

The Mega Pro’s laser packs 1500 mW of power – a whole lot of power. It’s designed to laser materials like wood, leather and paper, but offers a lot of variety. The printer can be used to customize all kinds of objects in these areas, and with the right application, real works of art can be created. 

Decoration, personalization and an artistic design are the three main pillars. The model is quite small that allows you to tackle many more projects.

However, when it comes to laser engravers, one thing needs to be said: If you already own a printer with similar performance and features (except the laser engraver), then there is also the possibility that you upgrade the existing printer with a laser engraver. To do this, you should compare prices and ask yourself whether the purchase of the Mega Pro is still worth it for you.

Dual Gear Extruder

A word that sounds complicated at first, but is easy to explain. The Mega Pro’s dual gear extruder ensures that the filament is pressed in from two sides – bondtech style. This minimizes the risk that the filament slips off. Quite a useful feature, as it allows for path orientation and optimized extrusion torque. The extruder is flexibly compatible with different filaments.

By the way, the printer also has a heated bed, which is equipped with a layer of glass and patented coating on the surface. This is to guarantee a good adhesion with the printing materials such as PLA*, ABS* or HIPS*.

Printing in Multiple Colors

We already briefly touched on the variety that the Mega Pro offers in the laser engraver. This is reinforced by the fact that the 3D printer can spit out its work in several colors. 

However, this is not classic multi-color printing in the conventional sense, as the device cannot switch automatically between different filaments. Instead, the Mega Pro offers the option of pausing between certain layers so that one filament can be manually exchanged for another. 

It can be paused at different layer heights and the different colors can be printed with just one nozzle. The pause can be preset up to six times. The result is almost the same as with multicolor printing – color diversity in 3D printing.

TMC2208 Stepper Motor Driver

The modern stepper motors ensure smooth and fine movements. This allows the printing process to be calmed down and produces uniform and very clean prints. The stepper motors of the TMC2208 series are extremely reliable and do not cause any worries under normal circumstances, even with frequent use.

Another plus of the driver is that it reduces the volume to a minimum when printing.

Large Building Volume for Unlimited Creativity

Once again, back to the diversity factor. The Mega Pro offers an enormously large build volume compared to some other 3D printers. This is 21.0 × 21.0 × 20.5 centimeters in the print format. The engraving format records 22.0 × 14.0 centimeters. Through the latter, you can let off steam in the areas of art design, individual design and decoration.

This allows you to create even more projects than with other printers. There are just fewer limits to your creativity.

Touch Screen

The 3D printer can be controlled by a touchscreen with modern technology, which has a size of 3.5 inches. This shows itself to be confident and with a fast response time. However, we have to honestly say that the touchscreen’s design looks a bit outdated.

Improved Leveling Knobs

With regard to the improved leveling knobs, Smart Leveling should also be mentioned. The leveling knob can be searched for automatically and leveled in a simple way. The Anycubic Mega Pro convinces with a modular design.

Assembly can be done in a few minutes – which, by the way, also applies to the solid metal frame. The printer is delivered in two large parts, which can be assembled appropriately with eight screws in a few minutes. The required tools are included in the scope of delivery.

Performance

Anycubic recommends using Cura as the slicer software for the machine. The manufacturer is well represented in the list of machine options with Cura, and you can find all the details about the options and settings in the manual. The initial setup of the Mega Pro is enormously simple and offers two different approaches.

If the first one is chosen, then the print head and the print bed move and, in addition, the height can be adjusted manually with the height controls under the bed. In the second variant, the leveling module is connected. The same leveling process is performed, but this time an alarm sounds when the bed height is correct. This makes leveling the bed extremely easy.

The touchscreen interface is a bit outdated in design, but it works exceptionally well. The filament detector, which prevents the filament from running out, should also be highlighted. For this, the machine is stopped when it reaches the end of a spool or the filament breaks. This also prevents damage to the machine.

Technical Data

The many useful and modern features are quite promising, but what about the technical data? We have listed all relevant data about the Anycubic Mega Pro below.

General data around the Mega Pro: 

  • Technology: FDM, laser engraver

Price

We have already touched on the fact that the Mega Pro is also distinguished by its price, which is significantly lower than its competitors with an integrated laser engraver. 

A comparison with the CP-01* from Creality, which is considered a competitor of the Mega Pro, is worthwhile. The Creality model costs about twice as much, which impressively shows the attractive region Anycubic’s Mega Pro is in.

Criticism

When Anycubic launched the Mego Pro, it happened almost quietly. In the summer of 2020, the company made relatively little fuss about the 3D printer, which was unveiled along with the 4Max Metal stainless steel printer. To celebrate its fifth anniversary, the company launched half a dozen other products during this time, which is why the Mega Pro went somewhat under the radar.

Since last summer, however, there has been a real surge in popularity around the Mega Pro. The model was seen by some experts as an upgrade to the Mega-S*, offering the benefits of a Bondtech-style extruder and assisted bed leveling alongside the new key features of an easy-to-apply laser engraver. The print result is also said to be very clean and reliable – quite typical of Anycubic’s models.

Generally speaking, the Mega Pro excels especially in the price-performance category, which is obviously due to the integrated laser engraver. It is particularly noteworthy that it takes less than a minute to swap the 3D printing and laser engraving functions. The 3D print head is of good quality and this also applies to the laser engraving function, which offers a lot of depth.

Pros & Cons

Finally, we have listed the biggest advantages and disadvantages of the Anycubic Mega Pro.

Pro:

  • Incredibly cheap
  • Double function
  • Excellent print quality

Contra:

  • The design of the touchscreen interface looks outdated
  • No enclosure option

Related Questions

What makes the Anycubic Mega Pro stand out?

The big plus that immediately catches the eye with the Anycubic Mega Pro is the laser engraver. With the 3D printer, you enter the world of multifunctional 3D printers and can supplement your tool with a real all-rounder. The Mega Pro also comes with many other interesting, useful and modern features. Examples include printing in multiple colors and the Dual Gear extruder. The design is modern and functional, and the setup is kept enormously simple.

What sets the Anycubic Mega Pro apart from the competition?

The clear and quick answer: the price. The Mega Pro must be compared in performance level to 3D printers that are also a two-in-one solution with 3D printing and laser engraving capabilities. Such are, for example, the Snapmaker and the Creality CP-01. 

These are almost twice as expensive in price, which quickly makes perhaps the biggest advantage of the Mega Pro seem clear and obvious. There is probably no other 3D printer on the market that offers the combination of 3D printing and laser engraving for this price.

Buy Anycubic Mega Pro or equip your own 3D printer with a laser engraver?

This is an important question that cannot be answered exactly in general, as it depends on a number of factors. In principle, it is of course practical to buy a 3D printer that is directly equipped with the functions of 3D printing and laser engraving. 

However, it is also possible to upgrade your own 3D printer with a laser engraver* at a reasonable price. You should therefore compare which printer is more powerful – yours, or the Mega Pro from Anycubic. If your printer has more and better features and performance data to offer, then it’s worth upgrading. If the opposite is the case, then it would probably be worth buying the Mega Pro.

Conclusion

The Anycubic Mega Pro* can definitely be called a small revolution in the 3D printer cosmos. That’s because, as a multifunctional printer, it can combine the functions of 3D printing and laser engraving at an affordable price. The two-in-one device enables an enormous number of possibilities and supports your creativity. The variety is extremely large and you can use it with different materials.

The complete package of the Mega Pro also fits together. Besides the laser engraver, the 3D printer has a few other useful features, many of which are modern and very practical. Anycubic follows the signs of the times with this model and shows significant improvements to predecessors in many areas. The Mega Pro doesn’t have to hide from the competition anyway because of the exceptional price. 

Compared to other 3D printers that have laser engraving capabilities in addition to 3D printing, the Anycubic Mega Pro is half the price.

AnyCubic makes decent yet well priced 3D printers, and with each release, the functions and features of their machines take a leap forward. This has made AnyCubic and their Mega series one of the most popular printer ranges out there. 

Not only are they good, but they're highly updatable, with many guides online showing how to push these sub $350 printers to compete with the industry's best. 

The AnyCubic Mega Pro features an ultra-sturdy metal frame, upgraded extruder, hotend, ultra-quiet motor drivers and advanced features that pitch this printer well beyond its price point.

Not only do the 3D print specifications look good, but AnyCubic has devised an ingenious laser engraving option that piggybacks onto the print head, and this comes as standard.

Design

The Mega Pro follows the usual three-axis 3D printer design, with the print base moving back and forth along the Y-axis and the print head sliding across the x and rising through the Z-axis. 

This gives the printer a relatively slim front profile that makes it easy to position on a desk or work surface. 

A growing design theme for 3D printers are the enclosed electronics that keeps wires, motors and control boards all tucked neatly.

The Mega Pro also shows the evolution of 3D printer functionality with a convenient touch screen on the front, making it easy to navigate and understand. 

The printer's design has been well thought through with the robust metal frame keeping everything solid. 

Filament reel position and mains power seem to have been carefully considered, even if the SD card slot and USB port are a bit fiddly to access.

There are also several design updates that I've seen on other printers recently that help with maintenance and adjustment. Foremost of these is the large bed adjustment dials under the print bed that assist with easy bed levelling.

Features

The Mega Pro is packed with features that make it stand out; the big robust metal frame is designed to ensure minimal vibration and wobble as the model prints. 

The touch screen on the front, a feature that is just starting to appear on machines of this price range is reactive and works well.

One feature that I really like are the new larger adjustment knobs for initial bed levelling - they just make the process really easy. These manual adjustments to the print bed are joined by a plug-in bed levelling module which is ingenious, I'll come to that in the performance section. 

There's also the inclusion of filament detection, so the printer will stop automatically if it runs out of material Another fail-safe is the resume print that enables you to recover from power loss.

One feature that's becoming increasingly common is the ability to start and stop printing so you can swap colour filaments mid Print. It's a bit of a faff but a great feature.

Finally worth a note is the print platform, this is one of a few printers now arriving with textured glass platforms. These give incredible grip while printing but release the Print easily once cooled. 

Finally, if the 3D print features don't grip you, you have the added feature of that laser engraver. Installing this takes around five minutes and due to the piggyback design is quick and easy to set up. 

Once installed onto the machine, the laser engraver can be controlled through dedicated engraving software such as LightBurn. Setup takes a bit of working out, and the process could be better documented, but the end result is a 3D printer and laser engraver in one. 

Performance

AnyCubic, like almost all manufacturers, recommend using Cura as the slicer software for the machine. Although there isn't yet a profile for the Mega Pro built-in, AnyCubic is well represented in Cura's list of machine options. In the AnyCubic manual, there are full details on the options and settings. 

Initial setup is again straight forward, and there are two approaches. The first sees the print head move around the print bed and the height can be adjusted manually using the large height dials under the bed. 

The second way is to plug in the levelling module that is fitted over the hotend. The same levelling process is carried out, but this time an alarm sounds each time the bed level is correct. This makes bed levelling extremely easy. 

One levelled and you're ready to print the first print. AnyCubic has supplied a few on the SD card that arrives in the box. 

As the first layer is extruded you start to get a taste of how accurate this printer is. 

Over the test, the print quality was consistent, and after the first few prints a tweak to the retraction settings helped to stop any signs of stringing. The only weakness in the print quality was in the overhangs. However, the quality of the bridging was excellent and in real world prints the overhangs seem to print well. 

Checking the quality of self-made prints and the overall quality was outstanding.

Aside from the print quality, it's worth mentioning the noise, or lack of from the machine, you can hear the fans, but it's far quieter than many printers in this price range. 

The other features that are noteworthy are the touch screen interface, while it looks slightly dated in design it works exceptionally well. It's also nice to see the filament detector, which helps prevent filament from running out by stopping the machine if you get to the end of a reel or the filament snaps. This helps to prevent machine damage. 

The other major part of this machine is laser engraver. Once fitted the laser is rated at 1500w, this is a mid powered head that enables the engraving of materials rather than cutting. 

It works exceptionally well, and although the machine laser engraving features are basic, there's plenty of scope for creativity.

The quality of the engravings on the wood supplied was good, and are a great addition for hobbyists and crafters. 

Print quality

As ever when it comes to the 3D print features I ran the machine through the usual tests. Overall the results were good with the only area that didn't fare so well being the overhangs. 

Dimensional accuracy - score of 5

  • Target 25 = X: 24.85mm / 0.15mm Error | Y: 24.80mm / 0.20mm Error 
  • Target 20 = X: 19.95mm / 0.05mm Error | Y: 19.98mm / 0.02mm Error
  • Target 15 = X: 14.99mm / 0.01mm Error | Y: 14.92mm / 0.08mm Error 
  • Target 10 = X: 10mm / 0mm Error | Y: 10mm / 0mm Error 
  • Target 5 = X: 4.98mm / 0.02mm Error | Y: 4.85mm / 0.15mm Error

X Error Average = 0.05

Y Error Average = 0.09

X&Y Error Average = 0.07

Fine Flow Control - score of 2.5

Fine Negative Features - score of 5

Overhangs - score of 1

Bridging - score of 5 

XY resonance - score of 2.5

Z-axis alignment - score of 2.5

Adding up the totals gives a final score of 23.5 out of 30.

That's a good result for a machine that costs less than $350 and doubles as a laser engraver.

Final verdict

It's easy to see why this machine has become so popular so quickly. The price makes it instantly appealing, but it's the attention to detail that makes it stand out.

The build and construction are solid, and there are plenty of options to tinker and upgrade if you want.

Print quality is excellent, and with a little tinkering of the settings that quality only gets better. While the machine excelled in almost all areas of print quality, it does struggle with overhangs. 

However, when it came to dimensional accuracy, the Mega Pro proved to be one of the most accurate 3D printers on the market. 

The 3D print function is just part of the story with the Mega Pro, enabling you to attach the laser engraving head. 

This is easy to install, and once you've worked out the software settings, it's straightforward to use. The laser is low power making it an ideal for engraving materials rather than cutting. 

The AnyCubic Mega Pro is a well-rounded machine that should find wide appeal.
