Anker already has a long list of products on its radar, including power banks, phone chargers, cables, and other accessories. However, it is this latest addition to its already extensive portfolio that will surprise many. Anker is crowdfunding a 3D printer on Kickstarter and that seems to be quite a bit. One of the main highlights is the fivefold increase in print speeds unlike any other competitor on the market.
However, this is just a Kickstarter project and there will be a lot of risks involved for obvious reasons. Anker has a good reputation in the market, so this shouldn’t be much of a problem. This is why many investors thought it was safe and the project has already raised more than $1.5 million in funding on its very first day. It is not only the good name of the company that this hefty amount received, the M5 appears to have many attractive specs.
As mentioned before, the pinnacle is speed. In addition, Anker claims that the M5 will reduce 3D printing times by 70 percent at a print speed of 250mm/s. The M5 is a turnkey solution. Users don’t have to worry about changing settings to get the most out of performance. All you need to do is turn on the printer and let it do its magic. The biggest is speed. Anker boldly claims that the M5 dramatically reduces 3D printing times by 70 percent with a print speed of 250mm/s. That’s also an out-of-the-box claim, rather than the user having to tinker and optimize some settings to achieve peak performance. Just put it together, turn it on and watch those prints fly.
In Anker’s words, “You achieve high-speed precision with PowerBoost, which optimizes power with its Y-axis transmission system. PowerBoost uses a powerful stepper motor, a dual-belt drive shaft and a stabilized motion algorithm to deliver loads of extra power for high-speed printing coupled with a high price tag, the AnkerMate M5 3D printer has a suggested retail price of $749.
