What

So another day another 3d printer

this time its the anet a8 from el cheapo land gearbest

below you will find the profile settings for cura 2.6.2

Needed upgrades

  • New PSU (the one that came with is a fire hazard)
  • Mosfet (board of the printer cant handle the amps directly)

  • putting spades on the cables from the psu and heatbed
  • replace heatbed wire for thicker ones (the cables from a eurostekker are suffecient)
  • solder the wires directly on the headbed (connector is a fun fire hazard)


Printed upgrades

The printer will be eventually be fully upgraded to a AM8

Todo list

  • build manual so other people can print with
  • place the links for the 3d printed upgrades
  • upgrade the printer to said AM8 frame

How to avoid temp overshoot issue

First set temp via display menu. Then print from sd card.
