What's the Best Build Surface for Anet E10 and E12?

by Maxx3D

I used the 'BuildTak' surface that came with the E10 for quite a while before it was damaged and needed to be replaced.
I started using Blue Painters Tape after that. I applied the tape directly onto the aluminum heatbed.
That worked fine for a while, but having to take off the old grungy tape and put new tape back on was a pain in the ass!
I watch a lot of 3d printing youtube channels and saw someone using a mirror tile to print on.
I went to Lowes and got a package of 12"x12" mirror tiles and school glue sticks.
I been using this ever since. I have the same on the E12.

What do you use?
I would like to try a flexible removable solution, but I dont want it to be soft plastic material. Maybe spring steel or something like that?

ANET E10 Review

by pezzer2003

G’day everyone,
I accentually deleted my original post, so here we go again.
I was asked by GearBest to review the Anet E10. I created a review Blog @ https://pezzer2003.blogspot.com/2018/07/pezzers-anet-e10-3d-printer-review.html

I had a lot of issues with the original quality and I found I had to create a lot of parts to help with minor issues. I created the following:
Anet E10 X Axis End Stop Switch Upgrade: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2491907
Anet E10 Y Axis End Stop Switch & Linear Rod holders Upgrade: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2496841
I also needed to use and made the following to assist:
Anet E10 - Improved Y-Belt Bracket: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2486547
Anet E10: Cable strain relief for heatbed: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2482038
Anet E10 - Improved Fan Shroud: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2481362
Turbine style 40mm fan guard: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2505568
Once I finally got these Mod’s, I was able to get great Prints.

GearBest no longer sells this printer. But they do sell great parts and upgrades.

I am currently overhaling the entire printer by Adding a V-Slot X gantry, moving the controller, IC board and power supply under the printer and upgrade the extruder head.
I will keep you posted with this and start a new BLOG for it too.

Cheers,

layer counter

by TodorMND

Hello. This is an easy way to show layers when the printer is running. When the Cura saves the gcode, I open the file with a notepad and just make one change. look at the pictures.

Filament Color to match the printer

by JohnStrand

I know this is purely cosmetic, but what filaments are people using to print their parts so that the parts match the printer? I have tried finding an Anet E10 Green everywhere, but to no avail. I have the printer printing reliably with an EZABL Pro Mini sensor, so I get a great first layer, All the belts are properly tuned, I'm printing on a glass bed with no adhesion issues, it's really set up great, and i've only had it for a month or so. I am currently working on converting it to an All-In-One, to get rid of the side control box and want to print out the pieces in a nice color that will complement the printer, and not black. :-) I have tried the Inland Peak Green, but it is still not right. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
