We’ve seen glimpses of a future for Anycubic’s machines in recent releases, but they’ve mostly felt half-baked – uninspired also-rans that painted the picture from a palette of beige.

The Photon Mono M5s, however, throws a lot of color at the wall with a 12K LCD pushing resolution, an uptick in print speed, Wi-Fi and cloud connectivity that doesn’t suck, plus plate-based print failure and resin level detection. And you know what? A lot of it sticks.

You can see the benefits of these features every time you use the M5s, most notably in its quick print speed. It’s not all perfect, though – some things are a little more smoke and mirrors than genuine innovation – but there are honest improvements that make the M5s one of the better resin printing experiences going today.
