Anet E10 printer kit with rapid assemblyThis is why the moment has arrived for Elektor to offer a new model of Anet printer, the E10, from the same family, but designed for those with neither the desire, the time nor the tenacity to take on the mechanical assembly of numerous parts as was the case with the A6.
In fact, the Anet E10 Printer (we filmed the unpacking and assembly below), is delivered almost ready to use. It's a kit which assembles in a flash; you only need to assemble the base (which comes with a heated plinth) and the frame together. No soldering to do, and the few connectors are well labelled.
Another characteristic by comparison with other models is the maximum size of printing: 220 x 270 x 300 mm.
It goes without saying, but let's be precise: the precision of the E10 printer is excellent, from ±0.1 to 0.15 mm (Z : 0.004 mm | XY : 0.012 mm)
The sound level is moderate to low. For changing setting on-the-fly, there is a large LCD screen and a rotary button for navigation between menus and parameters. The robust chassis is made of aluminium alloy.
The usable filament materials are PLA, ABS and others whose extrusion temperature is below 260 ºC.
