BELLEVUE, WA, April 6, 2022 -- AnkerMake, Anker Innovations' new 3D printing brand, announced today the launch of the AnkerMake M5, the first 3D printer designed to improve the user experience by reducing printing time up to 70%. The AnkerMake M5 is available today on Kickstarter.com, starting at a super early bird price of $429.
"3D printers help us imagine a world where ideas and creative concepts can be instantly transformed into physical form. However, the reality is 3D printing can be slow, cumbersome and difficult to figure out," said Steven Yang, CEO of Anker Innovations. "AnkerMake is committed to removing these pain points so that artists, inventors, hobbyists and DIY enthusiasts can take advantage of a more practical tool to bring their creations to life."
The AnkerMake M5 solves the most critical issues that have prevented 3D printing from becoming a more mainstream endeavor. These issues include slow print speeds, the need to constantly supervise printing for errors and a needlessly complicated user experience.
The AnkerMake M5 solves these issues by delivering:
Quick and Easy Assembly
3D printing has never been this accessible. The M5 is designed to be easy to set up in just three steps within 15 minutes. Several user-friendly features include 7x7 auto-leveling, PEI soft magnetic printing bed, auto-resume after power outage and printing notifications. These enhancements help the user focus completely on their prints instead of technical aspects and handcrafting.
A New Standard in Print Speeds
Thanks to its new PowerBoost technology, the AnkerMake M5 basic print speed is 250 mm/s, which can be used for printing jobs that require a smoother and more detailed finish. For faster print jobs, perfect for prototyping and less detailed finishes, the M5 can save even more time with an acceleration of the extruder up to 2,500 mm/s². In this print mode, the M5 can reduce the average print times by up to 70% in comparison to other 3D printers.
Stable, Quality Printing
The built-in HD camera will monitor print jobs for issues like layer splitting, spaghetti mess, or nozzle plugging. When it detects an issue, the AnkerMake M5 will alert users. This feature helps avoid wasting time and valuable printing materials.
Live WebCam View With Time Lapse
Users can view live feeds of their print jobs from anywhere using the AnkerMake mobile app. Time-lapse videos are also automatically generated after the printing job is complete. With an adaptive light-sensing algorithm, users can see the printer output clearly, even at night.
Smart, Connected Printing
The AnkerMake M5 can be seamlessly connected and controlled through both the AnkerMake mobile app and AnkerMake slicing software(1). Multi-device management and remote messaging notifications enable the user to start printing from their smartphone or computer anytime, anywhere.
Price & Availability
The AnkerMake M5 3D printer is available on Kickstarter.com starting today for a special, limited super early bird price of $429. The normal early bird price is $499. Additional press materials, including product images, can be found here.
