Anycubic M3 Max vs Elegoo Jupiter

Last Updated: September 23rd, 2022

Large resin printers allow you to efficiently batch print and make larger items. The M3 Max and Jupiter have XY resolutions similar to the smaller printers, so prints will be just as beautiful and detailed. 

The Anycubic M3 Max provides the best bang for buck and is the printer that we recommend. The M3 Max is cheaper, has more resolution, and has slightly more build volume than the Jupiter. Until more units land in the community's hands, we will have to wait to get feedback on the nuisances of each printer.

Anycubic Photon M3 Max and Elegoo Jupiter

  • The Jupiter and M3 Max have a metal vat by default.
  • The printers come with a screen protector for scratches and spills.
  • The Jupiter and M3 Max have dual linear rails for much needed stability.
  • Both printers are equipped with an automatic resin refilling system.
Feeding System

Anycubic's new resin feed system for the M3 Max.

Anycubic Photon M3 Max

  • The Photon M3 Max has the largest build volume of any Anycubic printer at 298 x 164 x 300 mm. This is larger than the Elegoo Jupiter but smaller than Phrozen's Mega 8K.
  • The M3 Max has a XY resolution of 0.043 mm, which is better than the Elegoo Jupiter and the same as Phrozen's Mega 8K.
  • Anycubic's resin printers have the RERF file which allows you to print eight exposure times in one go, making calibration faster.
