If you want better prints and faster printing, you need to make the Anet A6/A8 more regid with a stiffer frame.
One way of doing this, is to clamp/mount the y-carriage M8 rods to a solid base plate. The plate can be plywood or similar.
Most other solutions I found is either too big, requires dis-assembly or lacks a firm grip on the frame.
This design is a simple U shaped clamp/mount with integrated thread, keeping a firm solid grip, no sliding when printing.
Very easy to use after the printer is assembled - Place printer on base, put clamps on M8 rods, mark holes and fix printer to base with screws.
To assemble you will need:
- 4x printed base frame clamps (optional without thread).
- 8x Screws for mounting clamps to base plate.
I have provided a version without threading if needed.
See photos for assembly. Steady printing ... :-)
3 perimeters, 4 top and 3 bottom layers.
Shown model is printed in white PETG, but other stiff filaments will do.
