5.0 out of 5 stars The best quality resin printer for price, period.
By Alyssa Evans on January 16, 2019
The first print of an intricate figurine came out flawless! No adjustments, just plugged in the suggested settings, using the ESUN clear UV resin. And 2 hours later I was convinced. I'm NEVER buying another FDM 3d printer.

I'm a product designer. EPAX had a booth at CES 2019. I grilled the owner for 15 minutes about the machine. And was absolutely impressed. His focus was to create a high quality, low-cost resin printer. Literally purchased on amazon an hour later. The prints you see in the pictures are not an exaggeration of quality. He's definitely achieved what he set out to do

I had been looking at buying the Anycubic Photon for months and months, and am so glad I didn't. The EPAX is such a better quality printer in my opinion.

PROS:
No Z-Wobble - Upgraded Z-axis carriage rail (Anycubic Photon doesn't come close to quality here.) Look at the pictures I included. It uses a double steel rod reinforced carriage and steel bearings. No calibration required runs perfectly out of the box.

Non-FEP Film for Resin Vat - Reduces print adhesion between layers that helps reduce printing errors.

Ultra-Precise Fixed Build Platform - Calibrated to perfection right out of the factory. Something I was not aware of, but resing printers have quite a bit of force due to suction as the build platform pulls away from the bottom of the vat. The Anycubic Photon uses an adjustment system that just plain isn't as rigid. So if you're not careful to tighten things, it can move out of alignment, failed prints, more time not printing. The EPAX uses a 4 point mount that is absolutely rock solid. Was already calibrated perfectly out of the box. I will be surprised if I EVER have to adjust it for the life of the printer.

Better Chasis Design - Besides the EPAX being built like a tank with an all steel chassis. The windows on the Anycubic looked enticing until I realized after printing my first print, that you can't view what's happening with the printer unless you pause, and allow the platform to raise. Regardless of how many windows on your printer you have. Which was no problem with the EPAX, pause worked like a dream, print raised to check on build plate adhesion and continued on without any detectable signs that printing was ever interrupted. Windows on a UV resin printer are NOT helpful. Just more opportunity for outside sources of UV light to mess things up.

Smell - Honestly I heard over and over about the smell of a resin printer, so far I've hardly noticed a thing...

Precise Optical Z homing - Pretty standard on most 3d printer's now, but glad to see they didn't use a less precise mechanical limit switch setup. Again was perfectly calibrated out-of-box. I'm used to FDM printers that need hours of calibration and recalibration. Still can't believe how much easier this is to print with.

Better Door Hinge Design - Anycubic Photon can't sit against a wall because it's hinged at the back fo the machine. EPAX can.

Aesthetics - I realize this is subjective, but the EPAX looks more professional in my opinion. I'm proud to have it on display in my office. It looks like a piece of expensive lab equipment in my opinion.

CUSTOMER SERVICE - Seriously when they say great customer service they mean it. Responses to my e-mail inquiries were sent within minutes to hours. Extremely friendly, very eager to help.

CONS:
Manual is detailed but needs some refinement to be a little easier for non-technical users to understand. Spoke with owner and said he's addressing this issue though.

Anything else that could go here like the smell of resin, or how part processing with resin requires a bit more than FDM 3d printers is so insanely outweighed by the ease of use, quality of print, and out-of-box printability. I don't think they're worth even listing as a con.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great
By Phönix on March 6, 2019
I have a Photon, EPAX, Moai, and three Form 1+ machines.

The EPAX has the following nice things that I noticed:

1. Larger LCD - 3.5 inches. I can read the time remaining on the EPAX without a problem.
2. Nice Z axis - has a wide spread of the linear rods which should be stable.
3. The resin vat has a rubber seal in it, so it can't leak.
4. Uses low-cost Photon replacement screens.
5. Will work with Photon vats, which are inexpensive.
6. More watts from LED - I tested exposure times as 70% of my other printer.
7. Easy to open bottom. EPAX uses four external screws and is simple.
8. Door opens around the sides for more access.
9. Built plate comes factory-leveled and may never need to be adjusted.
10. Higher contrast colors on display - for better readability.
11. Anti-aliasing. Parts are smoother.
12. Even illumination. This is a big deal - the light is more diffuse.

4.0 out of 5 stars [DO NOT INSTALL SOFTWARE FROM THE USB.]Files on the USB contained multiple virus
By Justin on May 13, 2019
Got this printer over the weekend but had no chance to use it. Tried running the installer for the 64 bit version of chitubox and am now hoping these haven't done any severe damage to my computer or leaked any important information. DO NOT INSTALL SOFTWARE FROM THE USB.

[UPDATE 6/28]

I contacted Amazon support about my above issue the moment this happened. Seeing as the only thing they could do was refund my purchase, I decided to not go through with it because at that point the damage had been done. I wiped my system immediately and started as fresh as I could seeing as how difficult a time my windows anti-virus software had containing the problem. Might as well keep it and try to make it work. To be completely honest I was extremely excited for this printer.

For those saying you should always download software off websites and stray from anything included, that's unacceptable. Any company expecting to sell a product and include software bundled with it should always be held responsible for what said software can do. And for anyone questioning this accusation I have a happy ending to this story. Today I received a letter from EPAX addressing this issue directly, mentioning that I was not the only who experienced the presence of virus ridden executables on their thumb drives.

I was not expecting this at all. Although the response was delayed, I appreciated the company responsible for creating this product addressing this issue regardless of the time frame in which I experienced my issues. The letter not only included an apology and explanation, but also some extra FEP film and a guard for the LED screen to prevent resin from seeping under and into the LCD. It was even stated that they would no longer include usb drives with executables with their printers. Even though the letter and extra goodies won't bring back my files or give me peace of mind knowing my files aren't floating around in the web somewhere, this was good.

So here we are now, I've printed many things on this printer and have many successes but also many failures. The failures mostly are due to my lack of understanding of dlp printing, but the success have far surpassed my expectations.

In closing, thank you for the response EPAX. I won't go to a 5 star review, but I'll definitely bump this up. Thank you for the letter, FEP film, and LCD protector.
