Anet E12 is an assembly kit from the Chinese manufacturer Anet. A budget 3D printer with an open design, this model has an evenly-heated aluminum bed platform and an all-metal nozzle. The nozzle is less prone to clogging issues, making printing more reliable and accurate.

The printer can be controlled via a computer or a micro SD card. Despite the open architecture, the Anet E12 produces very little noise when printing. The printer can be assembled in 10 minutes.

It’s been used to complete a wide variety of models, from vases to Christmas trees. Continue reading for the full 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 the more expensive printers, but is more than enough for prototyping and household use.
Here’s an example of a printed vase. While you may see some layering, the overall look is great:

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.
