 Important instructions

All parts should be checked before proceeding to assembly.

Installation instructions, print model, GCODE and tool list pictures are all included in free micro SDcard that comes with the kit

How it works

A Regular printer prints ink onto paper mostly use for reports and documents printing. Similarly, the 3D printer melts the material on the heated(heat bed).

The major difference is that regular printer does not move in any direction whereas 3D printer moves on its X-axis, that’s the way it applies material one layer over other. The nozzle starts moving in three dimensions and starts printing an object which a user commanded either by desktop or directly from SD card.

Printer upgrade options

As this printer is very simple and easy to use although another benefit is its upgraded safety and high-end printing performance.

Yes, a user can upgrade some of its parts to make sure its safe and to better its printing performance and speed. Some of the major components which could be improved for the printer are discussed below.

MOSFET

The First and foremost concern of 3D printer user is to take cautions for fire. The most recommended component for fire safety is MOSFET. This component is helpful to reduce fire risk and is capable to provide better voltage as per motors requirement.

This addition regulates the heavy workload that is placed on mainboard by heated bed and extruder.

Extruder

If you can change and upgrade the extruder so it will improve the printing quality of your Anet A8 3D printer. E3D titan Extruder is the most renowned addition to DIY 3D printer kit. This insubstantial construction can reduce nozzle blocking, help in increasing the rotation and you will get high-resolution print quality.

Auto-leveling

The auto-leveling sensor is one of the most desirable updations for simpler 3D printer kit. As manual leveling is time-consuming because you have to adjust the print bed after every second layer.

An auto-leveling sensor helps to detect metal and glass material and analyze the distance between the nozzle and print bed which provides ease to the user and simplifies the workload.
