Anet E12 is a budget desktop 3D printer from the Chinese manufacturer Anet. This Cartesian-style machine ships semi-assembled. You’ll only need to screw the pre-assembled frames together and plug the cables to start printing. It is an open-source device that can be upgraded according to your printing needs. Its limitless expandability offers wide design possibilities. Indeed, with the right mods, you can print engineering-grade tools from your desk. The build volume of 300 x 300 x 400 mm is surely a plus considering the low price tag.

The printer comes with an aluminum, open frame, which makes it easily accessible and hackable. The aluminum bed alongside the all-metal nozzle makes it compatible with a range of high-temp materials. The machine features an adjustable Y belt that can be easily tightened turning a screw.

Ideal for hobbyists and tinkerers as well as newbies, the machine has been used to produce several objects, including home decorations, functional tools, accessories, and more. Read our complete review.

Print quality

The Anet E12 is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 100 microns. The surface finish is not as smooth as you get with more expensive printers, but is more than enough for prototyping and household use. The sturdy structure along with dual stepper motors and adjustable Y axis with dual rods allow for higher quality, reliable prints.

The Anet E12 has a 0.4 mm all-metal nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail. The nozzle can heat up to 260°C, making it compatible with a broader range of filaments.

The print head runs on rails, which makes printing reliable, fast and precise. A dual stepper motor system drives the Z-axis movement, providing great accuracy. The Y-axis features dual rods for higher bed stability and a lower need for calibration.

Materials

Anet E12 prints with ABS, PLA, HIPS and other materials.

The fan-cooled extruder cools the model down while printing. It reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.

The model is done so well because the extruder comes with a fan.

The Anet E12 has a heated print bed, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials.

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.
