ANET A8 Plus Assembly Guide, Setup, Review, Easy Upgrades (STLs Included). Is This Printer Worth It?
I'Ve done more and more prints and, while you're taking a look at some of this footage, we'll just talk a little bit about the pros and cons about this printer, and so this is the anet a8 plus, and so it's 300 by 300 by 400 tall build Volume and that's the same as the et5x or et5 or gt5 pro - they have different models in the inet lineup, but it's comparable in build volume to that particular model. Now the et5x i own and the capabilities of the printer seem very very similar.

Just what I needed!
I purchased this printer as an extra so that I can create bigger items. It's like the best of both worlds between the Ender 3 Pro and CR 10. It's basically six screws ot put it together, four for the gantry and two for the LCD Screen. Overall, very easy to put together in a very short amount of time...

Awesome for the price
This was the cheapest big printer at the time i bought it. Easy to set up and use. Great purchase. Any questions can be answered on YouTube, plus the huge community around the ender brand.

Great printer, but understand what your getting.
I will start out and say that I am very pleased with this printer so far. It has been lots of fun and I have gotten great prints so far. Now for the reason it lost a star. The biggest reason is that the description states you get 1kg of filament and instead I got a .5kg roll. Even the cheapest stuff...

Purchase Advice Megathread: What To Buy, Who To Buy It From, And More, In April 2021
Cr 20 pro: This printer my mom currently uses, I love that they added the bltouch and the design looks quite nice, Problem that i found with the design is that its a bit harder to place upgrade on the frame,. Ender 3 v2, Nice upgrade of the ender 3, Looks quite nice visually aswell and i like the fact of the colour screen and the the power supply is at the bottem. Ender 3 max: Bigger build volume, pretty nice updates with the added yellow springs and metal extruder/filament sensor. screen is ok but i dont really like that the power supply is in on the printer and not out of side, But i should be able to change that right?.
