Anet A8 Accurracy

Recommended Posts

I have been using a $150.00 Anet  A8 for the last 2 years,its a lot of fun making stuff for the house and for kids,I hav no problem making things that stand ALONE such as insects,statues and such,but when I try to make something that gets put together such as belt tensioners,they DONT fit together, I have done all I think I can do with the belts,tighten them up,made a few "S" shaped belt tighteners,tightened and lubed the frame,bars and rods,for one the "H" assembly under the heatbed was upside down,even tho I put it together as the video said,but when I found a few pages on making this cheap printer better,they showed that the video that came with the instructions was wrong,so even after fixing that here is what I come up with from a 10mm cube:averaged out

Z-Axis =9.96

X-Axis=10.13

Y-Axis =10.10

now on a 30mm cube:

Z-axis=19.97

X-axis=20.14

Y-Axis=20:16

99% of the time Print Temp is 190F,and bed temp is 60F.Im at a lostt,but maybe Im expecting far to much from a cheap toy maker.

Thanks

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
