The Anet A3 is a personal FDM 3D printer manufactured in China. It’s a Makerbot-inspired printer, one of the few Anet printers that are shipped as a ready-to-use machine, not as an assembly kit. It has a heated platform and a direct drive extruder. Prints can be started from a microSD card or a PC.

If you are interested in an affordable Makerbot alternative, continue reading for the full review.

The Anet A3 had been used to print a wide variety of models, including the Cybran T1 Assault Bot from the Supreme Commander, skeleton models and the 3D printer itself.

Print quality

The Anet A3 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. Below is a model of a fish. While you can see some layering, the overall quality is fine:

The Anet A3 has a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail. The below model of a Cybran T1 Assault Bot from the Supreme Commander demonstrates the fine detail the Anet A3 is capable of:

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.

An extruder

 

Materials

The Anet A3 prints with ABS, PLA and other materials.

The extruder comes with a fan and a heated print bed. These features enable it to produce quality prints with both PLA- and ABS-type materials. For example, observe the skull and robot models below. The models have minimal warping and are fully functional:

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

The Anet A3 prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
