The Anet A6 is the Chinese version of RepRap Prusa i3. Sold as a kit, it had been used for a wide variety of hobbyist projects, including pencil holders, statues, the Eiffel Tower and parts of the printer itself. 

For example, one maker used Anet A6 to print a wireframe skull pencil holder. Printed with PLA, this is a stylish addition to your kids’ studying environment.

Print quality

The Anet A6 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. For example, below you can see the printed models of Thanos and Deadpool. While there is some visible layering, overall, the models look great:

The Anet A6 has a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail. Below you can see a bust of Anubis. Printed with ASA and polished with acetone, this model is incredibly smooth:

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.

Materials

Anet A6 prints with ABS, PLA, HIPS and other materials.

The model is done so well because the extruder comes with a fan. 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. This way the print quality would not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.
