Charger specialist Anker launches promising 3D printer on Kickstarter


Kickstarter Rule #1: Never support a 3D printer project. No project has worked as sold, if ever delivered.
Kickstarter Rule #2: If the achievement looks too good to be true, it isn’t.
250 mm/s is 5x the speed of an Ender 3 while here it is the architecture of the Ender 3. A CoreXY would have been possible, but not with a plate that has to move in Y and therefore has to bear the weight of the part to be printed.


BALA BALA all that!!! they make their first printer and imagine catching up with the cador who are on their 30th printer! but of course NAIFS and KIKSTARTER and more!
you don’t have to be a half knot to swallow so much aberration!


I’m skeptical like the previous comments except I wouldn’t be so extremist… The snapmaker released its multifunction printer and you can buy it quite easily and yet it comes from a Kickstarted base

Yes finally… it only took an Apple iPhone to run Nokia, which also had several to its name er… the naive people here are not the ones we believe.
After that I don’t know if she will be better or better not, but for now they have the benefit of the doubt.


To see the reality in a few months, but at least there are no names behind this project.
Anker makes good things I think (certainly less complex than a 3D printer).


we don’t compare apple with anchor!! and apple didn’t go through kikstarmefesse

And why not ? Apple wasn’t much then, um… but it didn’t matter, it was mainly an example.


Don’t underestimate Anker either, it certainly isn’t Apple, but it’s still a box that works well, now well over a billion dollars in annual sales, with good cash reserves. , little debt… And thus the means to invest in R& ;D for new products.
As for Kickstarter, it has become a practice for some companies not to actually fund their product, but to take advantage of the exposure that KS provides and have the opportunity to trade with potential buyers before the product is final, to to adapt as closely as possible to expectations. So some boxes pass on ALL their new products through KS or equivalent, while they already have dozens of products to their name.
We are clearly here in such a case of “redirected” use of Kickstarter, as the campaign target was set at barely $50,000, so clearly not a target to fund the development and industrialization of the product…


Do you really think Anker should go through Kickstarter, given the size of their box and the money generated? It mainly stinks of comm’ gratos


It mostly stinks of freebies
Freebies, no. Remember that KS takes 5% commission and Anker also puts an effort on the sales price to donors (43% for the first 200, 34% for the next 2000, 21% for the next 4000).


So an innovative printer without any innovation is crazy!!
Indeed, to boast of 250mm/s on an outdated and open Cartesian system, we are talking about PLA only…

Why only PLA? this type of printer easily prints other materials (ABS, PET, etc.)
