8K printing.

I hate using K's, but this Sonic Mini 8K has 22 micron pixels!

Also has some sort of LED projection. And dual rails.

And it is only $350.

Now there is no way I'm gonna get excited about anything from Phrozen after my Mini 4K problems, but it looks good on paper  :P

Looks like the resin vat is plastic.

8K is interesting, The format is decently sized too.

I'd be curious to see how it stacks up against the Anycubic Ultra in print detail, the build plate size on this mini 8K already has it beat.

What were your primary gripes with the Mini 4K? was it primarily the stability issues with the Z-Rail?

My Mini 4K was very weak and flexed a lot. Also had the replace the lead screw to get rid of stacked build lines every ~1\16".

Other than that it has been working fine. And i have never even sanded the build plate :P

Pretty impressive...  But I agree, with all the issues with the Sonic Mini 4K, I'd be very hesitant to purchase another Phrozen product.

The AnyCubic Ultra looks pretty impressive too, but the resolution is a lot lower than 8K, but supposedly, that's not a problem.  The demo prints from it are pretty darn fantastic.

The biggest problem I see with these new, much higher print quality machines, is that people like me that own an older machine aren't going to want to print anything anymore, because it'll look awful compared to stuff coming off the latest and greatest.

IDK -- In Nscale, most of what I print are cages, railings, ladders, trucks and automobiles and other detail parts -- stuff that would cost a small fortune at the LHS or Walthers .. those tend to be 3 foot rule models ..  guys that are printing for profit will probably want to invest in the latest and greatest .
