Anet E10 is a budget desktop 3D printer kit produced by the Chinese Anet. Composed of aluminum profiles, the machine ensures durability and stability. The assembly process is straightforward because most of the parts come pre-assembled. Also, the step-by-step instructions will walk you through the whole process streamlining your experience. You will get your new printer up-and-running in less than 10 minutes.
The E10 is a Prusa-style, open-source 3D printer. This means you can easily upgrade it by printing additional parts or replacing the existing ones to improve its capabilities. It is sold at a low price but can deliver accurate results comparable to those of more expensive devices. It is a single-extrusion printer equipped with an aluminum hotbed, which makes it compatible with an interesting selection of filaments (PLA, ABS, HIPS, and more). The device is controlled via an external control box, which includes an LCD display and an SD port for offline printing.
The Anet E10 has been used to print a wide variety of models, including toys, figures, decorations, functional parts, and much more. Continue reading for the full review.
The device prints like a charm. This Star Wars helmet shows accurate details, polished surfaces, and overall good quality. It took some time to complete the print, but it was all worth it.

The Anet E10 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 aluminum structure along with dual Z-axis motors and dual Y-axis braces make printing stable and precise.
The below-pictured, low-poly Bulldog looks really well. Despite some visible layering, it shows neat and sharp edges.

The print head runs on rails, which makes printing reliable, fast and precise. The dual Z- and Y-axis equipment along with the unique belt adjustment make for quiet and smooth operation.
The Anet E10 prints with ABS, PLA, HIPS and other materials. It also supports TPU filament. The material feeding system has been designed to enable easy material replacement.
Look how accurate and well-defined this walking robot is. Both the robot and the pilot have been printed with PLA. As you can see, there are no warping and stringing issues. To avoid the problem, the company equipped the extruder with a dedicated model cooling fan.

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 build area of 8.7 x 10.6 x 11.8 inches (220 x 270 x 300 mm) lets you print a wide variety of 3D models in one go, without splitting them into parts. Similar-priced devices generally feature a smaller build volume.
The printer is controlled via an external box equipped with an LCD interface and a rotating knob.
3D models can be printed via a paired computer or independently through an SD card.
The printer works with both Cura and Repetier-host software. It supports OBJ and STL models and is available for Mac OS X and Windows. Linux users will have to use a virtual machine or other software.
