Sehr gutes Preis- Leistungsverhältnis (€ 142,46 )

6h Aufbau

Als unerfahrener kostet es initial viel Zeit, den Drucker zu kalibrieren.

Die Oberfläche des Heatbed ist mangelhaft. Eine zusätzliche Matte wird dringend empfohlen.

Zusätzliche Apllikationen zum selbst Drucken werden ebenfalls empfohlen (z.B. Aufsatz dür Filamenttrommeln, Filamentfeeder, Gehäuser für Stromanschluss mit Schalter (leider hat der Hersteller keinen Ein- Ausschalter verrbaut).

Simple A-6

If you need help assembllng small objects this may be a challenge. The directions are good. Build plate leveling is a pain so l recommend a printer that is self leveling. I tinker a lot so l dismiss some of the general upgrades as barely needed after fixing "Z" wobble.  Otherwise you'll have fun with it as I do.  My A-6 cost $150, if you want average to very acceptable results  go for it.   The over $500 printer will be better if you want near pro guality.

Print well with decent quality, although it takes a long time. However, to begin with, it is very good because of how intuitive it is.

A Really Good First Printer

Brilliant for getting off the starting blocks to find out if 3D Printing is a hobby to pursue.

Very few limitations - can try most projects due to decent size build plate and full set of features/functions (heated bed etc.). A priority is to upgrade and stabilise the printer itself to get the best out of it, but this alone is good practice for a beginner and the end result is a decent unit for long-term use. Prefectly good for our purposes and we're able to achieve the desired quality from it with just a little effort. Very happy with the purchase!!

good machine for beginers

bit frustrating at first as first ever 3d printer  something new to learn about

It is a good cheap DIY printer.

A good printer, but not recommended for those who do not have an average level of technical knowledge. Needs some improvements, with low level of complexity. Periodic adjustments.

I got an A8

DIY A8 took 2h to assemble, after it's hours and hours of fun !  I use it with pla, at 50mm/s and 0.2mm, for various print, figures, arduino case, ps4 stand, each time i was really satisfied for a 100$ printer ^^. To start 3d print and test it's really an excellent product !

It's actually an anet a8 but Pinshape doesn't have that option!

I'll begin this by saying the stock a8 deserves a 1 star rating. However I went into this knowing full well I was buying a printer that would barely run enough to print upgrades for itself, and that is exactly what I did! Now the only thing left on my a8 is the rods, stepper motors, some of the wiring, the x/z gantry brackets, and the extruder J bracket--which is being replaced soon by a dual extruder.  I turned a piece of junk into a prusa mk3 killer for less than the price of an ender, and you can too. I've built 3 of these so far Check out the anet a8 group on facebook.
