The 3D printer Anet A6 as its sister the A8 is derived from the Prusa i3 3D printer well known to makers whose design dates back to 2012. Compared to the Anet A8, the A6 has a volume of 10mm higher print on the Z axis carrying print volume from 220 x 220 x 240mm to 220 x 220 x 250mm. This is an improved version of the A8 on several points: the LCD (LCD type 2004) has been replaced by a larger screen (LCD864). The print head takes place in a machined metal cradle. The cooling air is correctly guided using a nozzle (printed in 3D). Stepper motors are better and more robust. The print speed can reach 120mm / s. The heating plate can be heated to 100 ° C. The most demanding materials can be printed. Available from € is a price that remains correct for a 3D printer kit to build yourself. The price of the A6 is justified compared to the improvements made to the A8.

It is an ideal printer to start with 3D printing. First, it is often found in promo at around $165 at major Chinese merchant sites (all offers and coupon codes are updated regularly below). It is possible to print from a 3D printing software such as Cura for example by connecting the printer to your computer (Windows PC, macOS, Linux, Raspberry Pi …) using a USB cable. If the printer is not detected automatically, install the drivers for the CH340G USB to Serial converter. The drivers are available on Anet’s dropbox here. The motherboard is also equipped with an SD card reader. The firmware of the A8 supports GCode, OBJ and STL files.

Resources to assemble the Anet A6 and A8

Anet provides many resources needed to assemble the printer and set your A8 also usable for the A6

Help videos

Anet put on Youtube several videos subtitled in English very useful for the assembly and the setting.

  • Unpacking, carton contents
  • Mechanical assembly of the structure
  • Assembly of the X and Y axes and the carriage supporting the printing plate
  • Adjusting the tension of the toothed belt
  • Mounting the print tray
  • Mounting the Z axis
  • Installing the LCD screen
  • Mounting the print head carriage

Assembly (part 2)

  • Printhead
  • Extruder
  • 12V power supply
  • Motherboard
  • Wiring: X/Y/Z axis motors, extruder, print head, tray, LCD screen
  • Reel filament reel
  • Adjustment of the flatness of the printing plate (by 4 adjustment screws at the four sides of the printing plate)
  • Starting and checking the adjustment of the flatness of the printing plate
  • Filament installation
  • Print test

Z axis adjustment

  • Installation of the Z-axis limit switch
  • The distance between the platen and the nose of the print head should be 25mm. The Z-axis limit switch must be 23mm from the engine mount
  • Adjust flatness of the tray at the four corners. The space between the print head and the tray must not exceed 0.2mm (the thickness of a sheet of paper)

Installing the auto leveling sensor on the Z axis

The Anet A8 is not equipped with a self-leveling sensor. It is an accessory that must be purchased separately for about $10. This video explains how to replace the limit switch with an auto leveling sensor. This option slightly increases the price of the printer but it is an option that brings a great comfort of everyday use. It is a shame to deprive oneself of it. The self-leveling sensor is installed behind the print head.
