Delivered from the German warehouse, this item won't subject to VAT and customs charges, which is nice.

The Anet ET4 is a self-assembled 3D printer, which thankfully only takes a short while to set up and get going. For £133.49, this is a great price for a quality 3D printer. the included 10 metres of PLA filament (in a random colour) will help you get to grips with the machine, and additional filament is affordable.

Here's the blurb...

"Modular design, 3d printer only takes 10 minutes to install and use, save time and effort. Enclosed metal unibody design enables a more stable and reliable structure with compact size.

Auto-levelling frees you from time-consuming and labor-intensive levelling tasks; Support filament run out detection, timely remind filament shortage or cut-off filament.

Resume printing function, when the power is restored, the printer will continue to print from the interruption point, no worries about unexpected power outages.

Automatic load and unload the filament with just a click. With 2.8 inch full-colour touchscreen for easy operation.

Industrial grade chipset that allows more accurate, fast print. Protected with safety features like over-current protection, overload protection, over temperature protection, pre-over-temp alarm (turn off the heating switch automatically).

I don't need one but damn am I tempted to buy this.

Cool toy or actually useful? Intrigued on what people actually print out...


Got my husband one for Christmas, he’s printed a rubbish coat hook and a cool baby Yoda so far, so cool toy for him I guess, although he has big ideas, that he’ll never actually do....
I bought an Ender 5 a couple of months ago from a deal I saw on here for £212 delivered and it's honestly the best thing I've bought for a long time.
Thought it would be a fad, I'd print off a couple of toy miniatures then it would be relegated to the garage.
I printed off a Minecraft lamp (18cms x 18cms) so it was big and took nearly 48 hours running non stop but printer didn't miss a beat, came out perfect.
It was a Christmas present for a little girl, we fitted it out internally with remote control led strips it looked amazing, she loved it.

Printed off some Minecraft characters to go with it as well.
Other things I've printed are circular washers to fit around the downlights on the landing as the holes I cut in the ceiling looked ragged and were noticeable.
A floating toilet roll holder.
A Raspberry Pi case.
A clamp to stop our shower head slipping down the chrome pole.

Most recently printed off spectacle frames and fitted the lenses from my broken pair into them.
Saved a few quid, only use them for driving at night and watching telly at home so not too bothered that I look like a refugee from an 80's pop band.
I print in white pla, hence my 80's reference but anything you print can be painted with acrylic paint so adds a whole new dimension to your hobby.

I'm looking to print some WW2 tanks and weapons next and paint them up.

The pla I use is bio degradable so no harm to the environment either.

I love my 3D printer, can you tell

Have heat!, this new version comes with TMC2208's on the axis drivers so is quite quiet!
well reviewed also....probably a better buy than the Ender 3 at this price
Uses the STM32F407VGT6 chipset also apparently! likley the cheapest 32 bit printer you can buy right now!
Power Supply: 110V AC 240W ??
what can you with it?

What's the easiest software to use to do the modelling?
Do you use something like blender or proper CAD software?
Looks cheaper if you pay in USD on a fee free card, just over £125. Bit worried the power supply only supports 110 so you will need to buy a step down transformer as well

Depends what you want to do, for what I wanted to do ( custom fastenings amongst other stuff ) I used freecad which is easy enough to learn, you might want to check out the tinkercad website which was what I was recommended to get started with alternatively if you want to start off with already completed projects try the thingiverse website which is where people have uploaded the plans for stuff they've made - you'll find all the sites via Google
8% off for this category too if you are new member?
pandat13/01/2020 14:39

what can you with it?


for general ideas of what you can make with a 3D printer take a look at a website such as Thingiverse

I picked up Tinkercad in an hour by watching 3-4 Youtube videos. It does all I need. I haven't tried anything else.

You can download models that others have created on Thingiverse.
How noisy are these?
What's the upper time limit for a complex print?

My study is next door to my daughters bedroom - so if I started a print in the morning, I'd have to have it complete before bedtime? (7:00) pm

ABS only really needs an enclosure and a heated bed
, doesn't really have other requirements in terms of hotends or extruders

Yes they also confirmed with me that it is 220v

Can't wait to try it out. 10 to 14 day delivery so see how we get on.
What do people make with these? Is it just adding to the plastic problem?!
Can this only make tiny things?
Coming up as £221.12 for me. It's ok, there's none left in Germany

This is a great little printer then if it comes with TMC2208s you're looking at about £30 + new board/shield on the most parts, very few budget printers have the capacity to upgrade to this without heavy modification. An Anet A8 which is the usual 'go-to' cheap printer is a plastic frame, and has no driver upgrade capacity (short of replacing the entire logic board at around £60-70 all in - trust me I did it... worth it but still) and this is a metal frame to boot. Bargain.

For the modelling the easiest if you're wanting to do objects rather than models (like miniatures or characters) is Fusion 360 it's free for hobbyist use. For modelling probably blender, steep learning curve but it's free and doesn't require a maths degree like some CAD software (what it seems like to me anyway)

For slicing Simplify3D is worth it's price just takes all the effort out of maximising your print quality, slic3r is good for free but difficult to get highly refined high quality prints out of, cura is terrible in my experience.

FDM printers struggle with 'tiny' things. Miniatures for example, you'd be better off with SLA type printer. FDM printers are better for medium (around 10-20cm3) low resolution complex objects as they lack precision at small layer heights and high resolutions.
