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

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.

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 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

Improvements for Anet E-10 (Fan Shroud, Hotbed protector and more)

I have bought a new 3D printer, Anet E-10, and I will write a new post about it soon.

You can buy it here and with the dicount code ANET10 the price is very affordable.

The printer is new, so, why you put some improvements on it?

The printer is ok, but there are a hugh amount of users that already have ir, and they are designing a lot of improvements every day in order to improve the quality of printing.

Today I am going to show you one package of improvements, and in a few days I will show another one. Continue reading
