How to update firmware

You can buy the kit for Photon S here,  it takes more time to upgrade because of cable differences.

Why upgrade?

The original Anycubic Photon comes with the Sharp04 screen, which is 5.5 inches 2K RGB LCD, since 2018 there are Mono LCD coming out, and it is been widely used during 2019, Phrozen sonic Mini, Anycubic Photon mono series, and ELEGOO mars 2 series. we also write an article about RGB vs Mono, you can check here.

Now, most new resin 3d printers come with Mono screens, and even with 8K level resolutions.

In General, the Mono screen has 3 advantages compared with the RGB LCD.

Faster printing speed

The mono LCD has a better UV light transmittance, which means when you use the same resin, it takes less time to make it cure, and in the Chitubox setting, you will only need an exposure time of around 2.5s.  In RGB LCD the exposure time is about 8s~12s. Each layer saves you a few seconds, if you are printing a large file, it is much faster.

More durable in lifespan

The mono LCD has a process optimization, which makes the screen can run in the long term under the UV light,  it is suspected to work over 2,000 hours. and the RGB LCD can only work about 200 hours.

Better contrast ratio

The mono screen is designed for 3d printers, it also considers the usage of 3d printing technology, a better contrast ratio means you will get better details on the models, especially in sharpness.

For Anycubic Photon:

This kit comes with a Chitu L V2 that supports 6inch mono LCD.

You only need to follow our installation video.

Anycubic original Photon

Adjust the settings on CHITUBOX

You can use the setting of Mars 2 pro or add the default printer directly from CHITUBOX after upgrading this kit because the V2 board can only recognize .ctb file format, the original Photon use .photon format won’t be read.

The board comes with the right firmware, no need to update it.

The actual printing size will be bigger than 5.5 inches but not reach 6.08inch after modifying, please use this setting below.

build area offset

If your Z-axis direction is not right, you can edit the parameter file M8004 to fix it,

Or print this file we edited for you directly, and download it here.

    The photon was my first resin printer when it released 4 years ago. I had some fun, but it fell out of use due to slow curing and manual z homing tedium. Saw this kit on sale, thought it worth a shot. Got it in earlier today, no hiccups installing. Setup was easy with the sensorless homing. Honestly, the results on the first print are better than I expected. Not only did a print that would have taken ~7 hours finish in under 4, the results are comparable (not as good, but still crisp) to my Mono X 6k.

      Hi,
      You can pick a chitu-based printer with the same screen should be ok,
      for example, Mars 2 pro. make sure the resolution is 1620*2560.

    I needed a new LCD anyway, so I figured I would give this kit a shot, didn’t think much about it.

    Let me say I am so glad I did. The mono screen is so much faster to print with, even with the stock OG Photon light source. It’s incredible. Layer times are 2x to 4x faster!

    The article Chitu has about the differences between RGB and mono LCDs are readily apparent once you’ve printed with both on the same machine.

    I was a little peeved that I lost the Ethernet port on my OG board – the 2K mono requires a different board, which is included in this kit – but the capability of the printer is so much better, that I’m willing to find another way to run the machine over my network.

      The V3 board can support ethernet, it is more expensive so we choose V2 in this kit.
