    Anet A6 review
    Color:Black Size:US Plug
    ESP:

    Me llegó en 15 días.
    El paquete estaba correctamente embalado.

    Estoy muy contento con la impresora. La calidad de la primera impresión con la configuración recomendada fue muy sorprendente, y se puede mejorar con actualizaciones de piezas impresas y mucha paciencia.
    La impresora es fácil de montar siguiendo el video de YouTube, y la calidad de las piezas es buena en relación al precio.
    Escogí la Anet A6 en lugar de la A8 porque es un poco más pequeña y parece ser algo más robusta, también me pareció mejor la rueda de selección en lugar de los botones.
    Creo que la calidad de impresión de ambas impresoras es bastante similar y lo que realmente importa para conseguir una buena calidad de impresión depende de tu paciencia y habilidad para calibrar la máquina. Si no te importa la estética ni la rueda de selección, te recomendaría la impresora que fuese más económica.

    ENG:

    It arrived in 15 days.
    The order was properly packed.

    I’m very glad about this 3D printer. The quality of the first print with the recommended settings was very impressive, and it can be improved with some printed updates and a lot of patience.
    The machine is easy to assemble following the YouTube videos, and the build quality is fine for the price.
    I chose the Anet A6 instead of the A8 because it’s a little bit smaller and seems to be more robust, also I found that the selector knob it’s more helpful than the buttons. I believe that the print quality on both machines is similar, and what really matters in achieving a great print quality depends on your patience and ability to calibrate the machine. If you don’t care about the esthetic and the selector knob I would recommend the cheapest one.

    ESP:

    Uno de los acoples del eje Z no está hecho correctamente y esto hace que el tornillo de potencia del eje Z se incline un poco, a pesar de esto no parece afectar mucho a la calidad de impresión, de todas maneras se puede substituir por poco dinero.
    He leído que mucha gente ha tenido problemas con la fuente de alimentación y que se calienta mucho para impresiones largas, sin embargo, yo no he tenido problemas todavía, imprimiendo por debajo de las 3 horas.

    ENG:

    One of the Z couplings is not properly made and it bends a little the Z rod, but it doesn’t seem to affect too much the print quality, nevertheless, it can be replaced for a low price.
    I have read a lot of people saying that the power supply is weak and gets warm for long print times, however, I haven’t got any problems yet, printing under 3 hours.

    My first 3D Printer - the Anet A6
    Color:Black Size:EU Plug
    The problems that you have with such a device in the beginning, are not just on the device itself lead back. I had to learn everything first. I have tried many different settings. Now I get excellent prints. If you buy an Anet A6 you have to fix one or the other error in the design still. However, this printer has a very large fan base. Improvements can be found on various platforms and also on the Internet search engines. With a little technical understanding and peace, the assembly succeeds relatively quickly. Commissioning was very easy. It's my first 3D printer and I'm really happy with it. The Anet A6 is a very good device to enter this hobby.

    Die Probleme die man am Anfang mit so einem Gerät hat, sind nicht nur auf das Gerät selbst zurück zu führen. Ich selbst musste erstmal alles lernen. Ich hab viele verschiedene Einstellungen versucht. Jetzt bekomme ich ausgezeichnete Drucke hin. Wenn man einen Anet A6 kauft muss man den ein oder anderen Fehler in der Konstruktion noch beheben. Allerdings hat dieser Drucker eine sehr große Fangemeinde. Verbesserungen findet man auf verschiedenen Plattformen und auch über die Internet-Suchmaschinen. Mit ein wenig technischem Verständnis und Ruhe gelingt der Zusammenbau relativ zügig. Die Inbetriebnahme war sehr einfach. Es ist mein erster 3D Drucker und ich bin wirklich zufrieden damit. Der Anet A6 ist ein sehr gutes Gerät um in dieses Hobby einzusteigen.
    Suggestion
    You should plan a silenced box from the beginning. The Anet A6 is not overly loud. However, the noise at long prints can be annoying. Another problem is the already assembled extruder. Here it is no mistake to disassemble this again and tighten all screws again. I had received a large pressure incorrectly because at some point simply no filament was fed. That is very annoying. The slot for the SD card is hard to reach. Here it helps to get an extension. Overall, the A6 but for the price range is a really good entry-level device. I am happy.

    Man sollte von Anfang an ein einen schallgedämpften Kasten einplanen. Der Anet A6 ist nicht übermäßig laut. Allerdings können die Geräusche bei langen Drucken schon störend sein. Ein weiteres Problem ist der bereits montierte Extruder. Hier ist es kein Fehler diesen nochmal zu zerlegen und alle Schrauben nochmal fest anzuziehen. Ich hatte einen großen Druck fehlerhaft erhalten weil irgendwann einfach kein Filament mehr eingezogen wurde. Das ist dann sehr ärgerlich. Den Slot für die SD-Karte kann man nur schwer erreichen. Hier hilft es sich eine Verlängerung zu besorgen. Insgesamt ist der A6 aber für die Preisklasse ein wirklich gutes Einsteigergerät. Ich bin zufrieden.

    The Anet A6 is an amazing value.
    Color:Black Size:US Plug
    The Anet A6 has exceeded my expectations. Maybe because I found assembling the kit to be as enjoyable as using the printer. It's print quality and reliability has been astounding. Other than normal adjustments like bed leveling, the printer has worked perfectly, and I really expected to have to do more to calibrate the printer. After a few calibration cubes, I printed a rather large model that had high infill and high quality, and it was a marathon print, over 16 hours, and it worked perfectly. For me, this printer is really one where I can go to work, or go to bed and make some very ambitious prints with, and have confidence it will be done correctly while I'm gone.

    And I do believe the rotary dial encoder makes going through the menus much quicker and easier than the button pad of the A8. And the new arrangement the A6 has for the Z-lifter and X-axis with it's parallel bars vs. the older vertical bars gives you a few extra centimeters of vertical print space.

    I would recommend this printer to anyone, even an experienced 3D printer user who already has other printers, and would like to add more printing capacity without blowing their budget.
    Suggestion
    Very very minor 'cons" so far. A few of the screws were not threaded correctly and they would bind in the nuts, but you get plenty of spares and I didn't come anywhere close to running out.

    There was an order backlog because the Anet A8 and A6 are so popular, however Gearbest communicated with me, and I was always informed. And as it would turn out, the delay was actually much shorter than expected. My only real "problem" is that my children want me to print so many things, I may have to buy another A6 just so I can print the things I want.

    Anet A6 3D Printer review
    Color:Black Size:US Plug
    The PROS are:
    1. Best value for home printer I have found.
    2. Easy to build and nice DIY project even though the instruction videos are out of date as some parts are different than in the video.
    3.I am a 3d printing noob and have been able to print out my own designed keyholder with logo without any problems other than innitial setup teething problems.

    Only thing I dislike is that there is no physical on and of switch on the unit but thats another pro for me as thats on my to do list on my next DIY uprade list for the printer.

    This printer is also smaller and more compact than other more bulkier printers that have the same bed size which is for me a huge plus point.

    I would recommend any newby 3d print enthusiast to purchase this item.,,

    I have attached fotos of my upgrades done and printed with the printer with fully assembled picture and a picture of some prints I did and then my review video on youtube.
    Suggestion
    The biggest con is the wing nuts used for the heat bed leveling is utter garbage a design flaw.. hence the printing community has made screw caps that work 100% better than the wing nuts... I have cut myself so many times on the side of the heatbed and H-plate that the screws were the 1st print I did after my 1st successful test print.

    Anet A6 Printer Kit - Excellent Purchase
    Color:Black Size:US Plug
    Great build quality, Anet videos on YouTube to help with the build, solid construction, excellent community on Facebook, many upgrades available on Thingiverse.com, includes software needed to start printing right away. The shipping was very quick, GearBest has excellent customer service. This is the second purchase I make from GearBest and I am very pleased with them. I was unsure the first time I ordered, but they have surpassed my expectations and offer great service.

    Great features:
    - Big LCD with nob for navigation
    - Heated bed
    - Parallel X axis bars offering good stability
    - Nice extruder considering the price of this printer
    - Large build area at 220mm x 250mm x 220mm (X, Y, Z), bigger than many "name brands"

    I highly recommend this printer to anyone looking for a first 3D printer as it offers everything needed at a very good price.
    Suggestion
    The power supply could be higher amperage output, but the included one does not cause any issues.
    The "how to" video on YouTube from Anet has a few errors in it:
    - The H support for the hotbed should be flipped as compared to the video, they have it upside down.
    - In some of the steps it shows the screw size to be used, but it indicates the incorrect size. It is further along in the video so it is not a big deal and it is simple enough to figure out which screw to use.
    - The tape on the hotbed offers far to much adhesion. If I had known I would have changed it out for blue painter's tape immediately, but this is a minor thing and not really a reason to not buy the printer.

    Anet A6
    Color:Black Size:US Plug
    - Nice appearance, good Quality
    - Everything you need for 3d printing is included
    - 20A power supply

    The assembly takes about 3-6 hours and runs without problems. Ball bearings, round shafts, hotbed everything is just and of good quality. A layer of crepe tape is applied to the hotbed, which has very good adhesion. A 0.5 Kg coil of PLA filament in transparent was also included. On the enclosed 16GB micro SD card are a detailed guide to the setup, problem handling, and calibrating the printer as PDF (in English and Chinese). It also contains a few sample prints as GCODE files that can be printed directly.
    The power supply is from the year 2017 and seems to be stronger against now. It has 20A and is operated only warm, but not hot.
    All in all, at the price unbeatable.
    Suggestion
    Unfortunately, the really good troubleshooting PDF is translated into English, however, the side issues are no longer correct and there are missing parts of the picture or the text.

    The included Cura version (14.07) and the associated Ini file is out of date. However, you can download the latest version online. Caution, the newer version has a smaller version number (at the moment (25.04.2016) the version 2.5 is the latest, https://ultimaker.com/en/products/cura-software/list). The existing config file is unfortunately not compatible with the new version and can not be loaded here. You have to adjust everything manually or a corresponding file on the Internet.

    Отличный принтер за свою цену. Доставка условно курьерская, ехал по ж\\д долго, около месяца в сибирь. Все приехало целое. Акрил очень хрупкий в принтере, не вздумайте закручивать болты с усилием, надо как на детской игрушке слегка и только крест-накрест. Через несколько дней потрескалось крепление моторов оси Z, т.к. перетянул, но не беда, принтер продолжал работать и я напечатал новые. Вообще, он вам нужен для того, чтобы сразу же начать печать новые детали и улучшать качество =) Очень занимательный конструктор и недорого. В комплекте филамент прекрасного качества, вообще не имеет запаха. В принципе, стоит сэкономить косарь-два и заказать здесь, а не на алике у официалов, если есть желание подождать месяц. Качество печати после небольших доработок на 4ку! Вполне реально с нулевым опытом за неделю все собрать и начать печатать вещи приличного качества.
    Suggestion
    Бокорезы никакие, лопнули при первом применении. Не факт что принтер оригинал, скорее всего это клон анета, т.к. нет серийных номеров и отличается упаковкой и немного даже по конструкции (например, в оригинале болты крепления стола должны в этот стол вкручиваться, здесь же отверстия уже высверлены), но не критично.

    Cheap printer, but perfect for first experience
    Color:Black Size:EU Plug
    A very reasonable price for a 3D printer with actually everything relevant with it. Actually, no further parts are necessary. However, with a few extras that you buy in addition, you can improve the print quality even more.

    You have to bring a certain technical understanding to optimize details like G-codes or the even more important slicer optimization.

    The device itself has a pretty good qualtit for this price range. Nevertheless, they are acrylic plates that can easily give way during printing, an aluminium frame would of course be better.

    The use is different for each user, the more creative you are, the more you can achieve with the printer.

    All in all a pretty good printer for a reasonable price. Still, the quality can't match an expensive $800 printer.
    Suggestion
    Frame yields a little, so waves are created during printing. Not a big problem but a bit ugly.

    The assembly instructions are not really very accurate, but you can still get help from the Internet

    Leveling the print bed is annoying every time, but all 3d printers without automation have that in themselves

    A good printer at a good price
    Color:Black Size:US Plug
    This is an inexpensive printer, but I think it's a great value.

    I didn't have a choice but to accept the 'expedited shipping'. I'm glad that was used, because my printer arrived at my door in Canada in less than 2 days from it being packaged by GearBest.

    You have to watch the YouTube videos in order to know how to assemble it. Having a video is good, but you do have to do a lot of watch-pause-assemble in order to get through it all. In the end, it was very easy.

    Since it comes with a 0.5kg spool of PLA filament, you can be printing in no time, they even provide a few objects on the microSD card that you can print immediately. In the two weeks since, I've already printed over a dozen items, including 5 of my own designs. Not only is it practical, but it's fun too.
    Suggestion
    The micro SD card that comes with it, containing all of the instructions and sample objects to print, DIED within 3 days. Apparently, I am not the only one who has had it die on them. The manufacturer needs to use a higher quality memory card. Fortunately, the 3D printing community has posted a copy of its contents online for those of us with faulty cards.

    Very Impressed!!!
    Color:Black Size:EU Plug
    It took me about two days assembling the printer as I was taking my time and watching the 3D Printer Instruction--Anet 3D Printer A6 Assembly Video 1 and 2 that you find on youtube. When I finished, I inserted the supplied sd card into the printer's sd card slot and printed the pyramid test file. I leveled the heatbed and then preheat the bed and nozzle and started to print right away. The printer printed a perfect pyramid right out of the box. I'm very impressed with the print quality of the Anet A6 and consider purchasing a second one. I really recommend this printer. Its value for money.
    Suggestion
    The only cons I can say is that the acrylic which the frame are made of, are very brittel so DO NOT overtight the screws when you assemble your printer or you WILL crack the acrylic!!!
