Clearance?  Does that mean there are new models in the works?

don't know .. but it might be worth while to pick up another photon just for the parts

For the original Photon.  The "S" and "Zero" are available in the US.  But that doesn't' help the spares situation.

Mono X also on sale for another day.

https://www.anycubic.com/collections/sales

From Amazon (fufilled by Anycubic) you can pick it up for even less and another 5% off if ordered with the large wash and cure station.

Ok, so S vs Mono, what's the trade off?

Mono is newer, uses the monochromatic screen which prints faster and usually last longer (as in # of printing hours).  The Mono X has a larger print area so bigger things can be printed vs the Mono SE or the Photon S

Photon S has the original multicolor LCD screen which lets less light in the 405nm band through so print times are longer. This translates to a hotter screen and lower life.

Printing speed wise it's Photon Mono SE, Photon Mono X, Photon Mono, Photon S

The printing area is about 15mm longer and 15mm wider on the Mono SE and the Mono over the Photon S

3-D PrinterPrinting LengthPrinting DepthPrinting HeightPrinting SpeedXY Pixel Size
Photon Mono X192mm120mm245mm60mm/h0.050mm
Photon Mono SE130mm 78mm160mm80mm/h0.051mm
Photon Mono130mm 80mm165mm50mm/h0.051mm
Photon S115mm 65mm165mm20mm/h0.047mm

Unless the $$ is really tight, go with the Mono SE or Mono X (size) then pick the Mono over the S

If you have Amazon Prime, order from there. If you should have to return it for any reason, it's much simpler than trying to return to Anycubic.  Plus shipping is faster.

Do these all have the same pixel size screens?

I added to the chart.

They are all close but not necessarily the same.  Oddly enough, the original Photon/Photon S had the smallest resolution.  Though not by much.

So, pixels scale to about 5/16" in N scale. 

Am I correct in assuming that a pixel is the smallest blob of resin that a printer can print?

There will be a little light bleed, but the smaller the pixels the higher the resolution. Screen size has nothing at all to do with resolution.

Pretty much.  As Chris says, there is a little light bleed around each pixel, it depends on the opacity of the resin, the layer thickness you choose and sometimes the phase of the moon.

So, a true-to-scale version of a 3/4" grab iron in N scale would be about 2.4 pixels - call it 3 pixels.

Can 3-D printers make decent looking ridges that thin, to make printed-on grab irons like the molded-on ones we typically get from the mainstream rolling stock vendors?
