In just five minutes, Anycubic Photon Ultra, the first consumer-level DLP 3D printer, reached its Kickstarter goal for the first time. A little more than an hour later, it broke through $1 million.

According to the latest data, the project has received $1.58 million in pledges as of the time of this writing. 29 days remain until the end of the project on October 15. One of the reasons the Anycubic Photon ultra is so popular is that it satisfies users’ need for higher precision and maintenance-free 3D printers.

Known for its resin 3D printers, Anycubic 3D printers have been popular with 3D printing enthusiasts, makers, artists, and designers, especially the Anycubic Photon Mono X 3D printer.

Tom’s Hardware, Techradar, Tom’s Guide, etc. have all recommended it. Forbes recently also recommended the Mono X in its piece titled “The 7 Best 3D Printers Will Let You Manufacture The Future From Home.”
