One teacher tested the printer building up a plague mask composed of two sections glued together. Even if it will require some polishing, the overall quality is decent. A cool new way to teach history at school.

Print quality

The Anet A2 is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 100 microns. The surface finish is not as smooth as you get with the more expensive printers, but is more than enough for prototyping and household use. The heated aluminum hotbed ensures more stable printing and enhanced reliability.

The Anet A2 has a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail.

The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, making the design more simple, lightweight and effective, all characteristics that are desirable in a 3D printer. The rails are supported by aluminum brackets ensuring a high level of rigidity. The printer also features nylon roller bearings for the print bed.

Anet A2 prints with ABS, HIPS, PETG, PLA and other materials. 

The all-metal extruder comes with a heat sink fan for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.

To ensure high reproducibility, we recommend installing an enclosed print chamber to keep the printing conditions constant. This way the print quality would not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.
