Every year, Anker’s brand becomes more well-known. One of the causes for this is the company’s recent rapid diversification. Anker has several consumer markets covered, from the home line with eufy to the work from home warrior with AnkerWork. AnkerMake branding and a new 3D printer are now part of the expansion.
What is the Anker Make?
The company’s third-generation 3D printer, AnkerMake, is quicker and more precise than its predecessor. It has a unique patented technology dubbed “Movement Control” that, according to Anker, may lower print speeds to as low as 100 mm/s. Even though it’s half the speed of the MK3S+, the firm believes it can still provide good results.
What can the Anker Make do?
Anker also feels that ease of assembly is a factor that may be eliminated. The M5 3D Printer, according to the firm, can be functional in roughly 15 minutes with only three pieces to assemble, even if you have no prior expertise with 3D printers. The following is a summary of some of the key features present in the AnkerMake 3D Printer.
- A New Print Speed Standard: The AnkerMake M5’s base print speed is 250 mm/s, thanks to its innovative PowerBoost technology, which may be employed for printing projects that demand a smoother and more detailed finish. With an extruder acceleration of up to 2,500 mm/s2, the M5 can save even more time for speedier print projects, great for prototyping and less elaborate finishing. Compared to other 3D printers, the M5 may cut average print times by up to 70% in this print mode.
- AI Print Monitoring: The built-in HD camera will keep an eye on print projects for difficulties such as layer splitting, spaghetti mess, and nozzle clogging. The AnkerMake M5 will notify consumers if it finds a problem. This function helps you save time and money by preventing you from wasting printing materials.
- Live WebCam Display with Time Lapse: With the AnkerMake mobile app, users can view live streams of their print jobs from anywhere. After the printing work is completed, time-lapse videos are also made automatically. Users can view the printer output even at night thanks to an adaptive light-sensing system.
- Quick and Simple Assembly: 3D printing has never been easier. The M5 is meant to be set up in three simple stages in about 15 minutes. 7/7 auto-leveling, PEI soft magnetic printing bed, auto-resume after a power interruption, and printing notifications are just some of the user-friendly features. These improvements let the user concentrate entirely on their prints rather than technical details and handcrafting.
- Smart, Linked Printing: The AnkerMake M5 can be connected and managed using the AnkerMake mobile app and slicing software1. The user may print from their smartphone or PC from anywhere, thanks to multi-device administration and remote message notifications.
- Stable, high-quality printing: The aluminum alloy die-casting design adds weight to the base, lowering the machine’s center of gravity. Printing is more stable because of the slim design, which also allows for faster rates and intense acceleration. The base’s installation error is also decreased, enhancing the printing tool’s and surface’s accuracy even at high speeds with 0.1 mm precision.
How much does it cost?
While we can’t say for sure how amazing it will be, the specifications suggest that Anker is putting up a real fight and isn’t looking to be a one-hit-wonder.
With a basic print speed of 250mm/s and a retail price of US$759, the business promises that the AnkerMake M5 is a simple three-step assembly procedure and will be five times quicker than any other 3D printer on the market presently.
What is Kickstarter or crowdfunding? Is it safe?
Crowdfunding carries the risk of losing money if the firm fails to finish the campaign, but I’ve had far better luck backing initiatives from well-known companies like Anker. If you do decide to leap, early-bird support is still available for $499; retail will be $759 when the project launches.
