Adjustable feet for Anet E-10

Today I bring you a new design for put adjustable feet to our printers.

Why I need adjustable feet?

I don´t know if this is you case, but my printer is not as stable as I want and I need to adjust the feet with some external things. This is the reason because I have designed this part.

What do I need?

This is a low cost improvement, you will need:

  • STL file, that is located on Thingiverse
  • Silent block kit for air condioniting model SG-40, it cost about 2,5 € at Leroy Merlin
  • 4 M8 nuts, in addition to the 4 that comes with the kit
  • 16 M4 SHCS screws 10 mm lenght.
  • 16 M4 Tnuts 20 profile.

Duet WiFi on Anet E-10

Today I am going to explain step by step how to install duet WiFi board on your Anet E-10.

The board

Duet WiFi is a high end board, is made on UK and the main features are:

  • 32 bits Processor
  • TMC 2660 drivers, with 256 microsteps for make the movements smoother
  • Integrated WiFi
  • Web User Interface

What are the improvements?

  • Better management of motor drivers, the current is managed via SW
  • Smoother movements on the axis.
  • Absolutely silent
  • Allows 18 A for heated bed, so the use of MOSFET or relay is not critical.

Remote Control for ANET E-10 – Octoprint – Part I

Currently we are out of home the most part of the time, and I became to investigate how to control the printer remotely, and the best option for me is Octoprint.

What do I need?

The first thing is to have an internet connection at home 🙂

Another thing that you need id aRaspberry Pi, because we will install Octoprint on it, another good thing is to buy a camera to receive visual information from the printer. Continue reading

New extruder: Bondtech BMG

Today I am going to show you a new improvement for Anet E-10, Bondtech BMG extruder.

I bought the extruder on a massive purchase orgnised by SpainLabs with the collaboration of 3dfilamento.es.

The purchase

This was the first time that I  participated on a masive purchase, and I love this way of buying.

The process was very easy, you must sign on on the purchase forum and after that a discount coupon were sent to the people that signed on.

Juan from 3filamento.es is a very kind person and it was a pleasure treating with him.

The package arrived to Madrid two days before than the expected delivery date, but due to the transport company the delivery was not made on the day that is supposed to be. Continue reading

My first design – Support for mounting E3D v6 on Anet E-10

First of all I am crazy about E3D v6 hotend. For this reason, after watching the stock hotend mounted on the Anet E-10, I decided to design my first piece for 3D Printing.

What software have you used?

To design this object I used Tinkercad, that is a tool developed by Autodesk , is very easy to use and is cloud base, so you do not need to install any software on you computer.

The main idea of this software is to merge simple objects to create more complex things.

Marlin setup for Anet E-10

As I wrote you on a previous post, today I am going to show how I made Marlin setup for my Anet E-10 modified printer.

What I need to put Marlin on my printer?

First of all, you need Arduino IDE, I use currently version 1.8.5 and you can download it here.

Another important thing you need is Marlin, and you can download it here. Setup explained below this lines is related to 1.1.6 version.

In my case, because I use a big LCD screen I also need U8GLib to setup the screen, and you can find it here. Continue reading

Electronics change on Anet E-10

After checking that stock electronics on Anet is not good enough for me, I have used a GT2560 motherbard to substitute the stock mainboard.

Why you want to change electronics?

As you can see on the image below, Anet board only comes with one potenciometer to control stepper drivers.

Electronics Anet

This causes, for example, that you cannot set the intensity for the extruder motor, and this is the main cause of loosing steps. Continue reading

Anet E-10: First printings

After the previous post about the asembly of Anet E-10, today I am writeing a new post about the first printings that I have made.

Anet E-10 start up

The start up was vey simple comparing with the delta one. Hotbed leveling is very easy with this kind of printers.

I have some problems to put the filament inside the hotend, but once that it was inside the printer works perfectly.

The printer comes with Cura and Repetier software inside the included pen drive incluido, but I use Simplify 3D and I found a profile for the Anet on internet, and I have used it.

Another thing that surprised me is the fault of a firmware to update the motherboard, because the siftware is already installed on it.

Anet E10: The assembly

Finally Anet E10 has arrived!

The delivery date was the last planned day, 15 labour days from the purchase.

General assembly

The printer assembly is quite easy to do. It comes almost pre assembled but I had some problems because it was my first cartesian printer.

Anet E-10

Twist of Z axis stepper motors plugs

As you can see on all the reviews, the connectors come looking inside the printer. To fix that, simply elevate the horizontal part of the frame and then unscrew a couple of screws, and then twist the motors in order to set the connectors outside.

Upper frame fitting

This part of the assembly took me some time, because is hard to understand some things of the cartesian printer when you are used to use a delta one. To make this step properly, simply move up Z axis enough to release the pression on the bottom part of the frame, in order to align the screws with the holes. Continue reading
