AnkeMake M5C: Anker introduces second 3D printer

In February 2022, Anker announced its first 3D printer under its brand AnkerMake. After a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, the device quickly gained a large fan base. The FDM printer combines easy handling with high printing speed. Now AnkerMake has presented its second 3D printer, the M5C.

The AnkerMake M5C is positioned as a cheaper alternative to Anker’s first 3D printer. The sales price starts at 449 euros, while the 5C currently costs over 750 euros. As one can imagine with the price difference, the new model has fewer features. Compared to the M5, the M5C lacks a display and camera, and the print volume is 220 x 220 x 250 millimeters.

Like the M5, the M5C has an aluminum base frame and a full metal hotend. The double Z-axis is made of stainless steel. Print temperatures of up to 300 degrees Celsius are supported, making common filament materials such as PET, ABS, TPU, and PA printable. The maximum print speed is stated as 500 millimeters per second with an acceleration of 5,000 millimeters per square second. Printing is done on a magnetic PEI plate that can be heated up to 100 degrees Celsius. The print accuracy is given as 0.1 millimeter. The device also has an auto-leveling function.

The M5C is also aimed at beginners in 3D printing. It can be controlled via the AnkerMake app for iOS and Android, optionally via WLAN or Bluetooth. Print files can also be transferred wirelessly from Windows PCs and Macs. AnkerMake offers its own slicing software, but software for Cura or PrusaSlicer is also compatible with the printer.
