Anker is a Chinese tech company well-known for its affordable and high-quality products. Soon, it will enter the 3D printing industry with the AnkerMake M5.

It makes 3D printing quick and easy for a reasonable price. More industries are adopting this practice as it improves. In response, you might want to follow this tech trend by trying the AnkerMake.


This article will help you start by explaining how 3D printing works. Then, we will discuss how the AnkerMake M5 works and how you could buy one.

What is 3D printing?

Many people still do not understand 3D printing, so we must discuss that first. A 3D printer lets people create plastic figures from scratch.

It can make nearly everything you can imagine, from toy figurines to factory prototypes. There are many 3D printing methods, but we will focus on fused deposition modeling.

It is the method that the AnkerMake M5 uses. Fused deposition modeling involves printers that use spools of plastic threads or filaments.

An FDM printer will melt, pour, and cool the filament to create layers from the bottom up. Eventually, these layers will form a finished three-dimensional object.

Fused deposition modeling is the most user-friendly 3D printing technique. You load the filament rolls like printer ink cartridges, press the print button, and let the machine do the rest.

However, it has two common downsides. It usually cannot recreate fine details and leaves plastic supports around a model.

As a result, its products look like plastic model kits for toy figurines. You need to snap them off and buff the edges to get your finished product.

Anker looked at those two issues and thought, “How could we get rid of them?” As a result, it came up with the AnkerMake M5 printer. 


It uses filament rolls typical in fused deposition modeling. Yet, its nozzle has a precision level of up to 0.1 mm to create fine details. 

The best part is that it does not leave plastic supports. It releases your products without extruding plastic parts so that you can immediately use them. 

The Ultra-Direct Extruder allows the AnkerMake M5 to print five times faster than average 3D printers. Those usually print at a speed of 50 mm/s.

Meanwhile, the AnkerMake boasts a printing speed of up to 250 mm/s. Yet, what makes it unique is that it can use multiple colors for your models.

It can store grey, orange, red, yellow, green, and blue spools. As a result, you could produce models that use variations of these six colors. 

The machine also ensures that you do not waste materials. It ensures you have enough filament for your current project before printing. 

If you do not, it will send a notification so that you can refill your filaments. More importantly, the AnkerMake is easy to assemble in three steps.

  1. Bring out the accessories.
  2. Install the bottom screws.
  3. Start printing a model.

You may preorder the AnkerMake M5 now for $799 so that you receive two free extra filament rolls and a 64GB USB thumb drive. It will launch on December 1, 2022.


The AnkerMake M5 will provide quality and speed that stands above most competitors. It is the best choice for people who are serious about 3D printing.

If you are a first-timer, you might want to learn first using your friend’s 3D printer. After all, $799 is a huge price for trying something you might not like.
