Anet A8 Plus, a new 3D printer model but not an upgraded version

Many users think that Anet A8 Plus 3D printer is an upgraded version of the tremendously popular Anet A8, which is actually wrong. In fact, A8 Plus is at that time just an enhanced version out of no model. Anet 3D has developed many models and A8 Plus is one of them.

It comes in two versions, a kit and a semi-assembled version. Anet A8 Plus is based on the open source project Prusa I3 by Marlin, with this open-sourced feature, users can develop different function according to their needs.

The Anet A8 Plus is an affordable 3D printer kit from China, there is no question that so many people like this 3D printer which priced less than $200.

The Anet A8 Plus must be assembled by user. Some parts (small components) have already been assembled at received. The wiring harness is also better prepared. Assembly instructions provided on the included SD card. Nuzzle detector can help to sense if PLA is running out. Thanks to its high quality power supply allowing rapid heating of the printing bed up to 90 degrees Celsius. You can achieve high quality printing at high printing speeds. You can use it to print flexible PLA and other exotic materials without any problems.

Before, heating beds are not standard equipment on 3D printers. To make it easier to grab the print, the low price model comes with a print heating bed, which is considered as a rumor-breaking of Cheap on it.
