Although 3D printing has become more common than ever, it can still be a tedious task. To that effect, the typical 3D printer is complicated to use, takes a long time to get the job done, and usually requires a check or two in between to make sure everything is running smoothly. Not to mention that they are also expensive to purchase. AnkerMake, the 3D printing brand of Anker, tries to solve this problem with its latest release – the AnkerMake M5, and the AnkerMake M5 might just be the best 3D printer for home use.
What is the best 3D printer for home use?
Wanting to make 3D printing more mainstream, Anker designed the AnkerMake M5 3D printer to be not only more efficient, but also more user-friendly and much more affordable than conventional 3D printers.
The AnkerMake M5 can be installed in just three steps and, according to the company, can be assembled in just 15 minutes. Features to help you with this task include 7×7 auto-leveling, PEI soft magnetic print bed, auto power failure recovery, and print notifications.
The AnkerMake M5 also features PowerBookst technology which is responsible for its faster printing speeds. Compared to other printers, the M5 delivers up to 70% faster print speeds.
And to add more ease to 3D printing, an integrated HD camera monitors jobs and alerts when issues such as layer splitting, spaghetti mess, or nozzle clogging occur.
A live stream is also available through the accompanying app so users can also monitor the project through their devices. Additionally, the app offers commands and slicing software.
To produce the M5, AnkerMate turned to popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter. The Super Early Bird benefit offers the AnkerMate M5 for just $429, while the regular early bird price is set at $499.
