Anycubic Wash and Cure Machine

Just saw this on Facebook:

Couldn't find any other info on it.  It looks good for medium to large sized prints, but my initial inclination is to stick with ultrasonic bath and UV nail hood for the smaller prints typical for N Scale use.

"Sorry, this content isn't available right now"

I guess someone saw the leak and put an end to it.

For those who missed it, until someone finds another preview; the machine was a basic case with flip-top lid and a front swing door.  On the inside floor is a spindle, kind of like what you see on a blender. 

For washing, there was a tub that fits over the spindle, inside was a small paddle wheel.  When turned on, the wheel turns to create a vortex in the cleaning alcohol. 
To the back is a linear rail, similar to the Z rail of the Photon.  You can actually mount the entire build platform to this rail, or hang a metal basket.  This mechanism lowers and raises the parts into and out of the wash bucket. 

Switching to cure mode, the bucket is removed and replaced with a clear disk that fits over the same spindle.  There is a flip-latch lid provided to seal remaining alcohol in the tub until next use.   
In the corner is a vertical row of UV LEDs.  There is also a black sleeve that covers the unit to block out any UV leaks from the door or lid (guarantee 99% of folks will never use it).  The door has a large yellow Plexiglas panel.  When turned on, the platform rotates under UV.
