Finally upgraded after 3 years. So much better!
Cleaned, trued and levelled my Z axis threaded rods and their couplers, printed a fan duct closer to the nozzle. Improvements.

All assembled, but the hot bed thermistor reads open... Can't try it out until Sunday post gets here
This is my Ship of Theseus. Every part has been replaced, but i still call it an Anet A8
Feel free to show this to your printers. This is what happens when you error out 1 time too many for a man who's had 4 hrs sleep
Marlin saved my printer and my house.

Can anyone tell me the most effective way to put the replacement bearings in the factory housing?
My walls aren't sticking to each other, what's wrong?
This one came out much better. 198 and 60 for the bed 30 speed. I will install it later.
Anybody want a cat?
Starting my AM project. How much of an Anet do you have to keep for it to still be considered an Anet?
Looking for filament/spool holder exactly as in this photo. Can anyone share .stl file? Thanks!
After updating to marlin 1.1.9 and changing filament! This thing prints perfect every time!
Need assistance on layer lines.
Help, a8 nozzle started oozing
Went to bed and everything was moving along but I woke up to this. Any ideas on how to fix?
How many of you oil your slides/bearings? I was getting some bad prints and my bed felt like it was grabbing. I put a little oil on and bam! Perfect prints
Right after assembling my printer, it printed something at the first try. What should I do now?
Did antet swicht the mainbord conectors once again ?
This is the plug that came with my Anet A8. Is the ground prong supposed to come off and apparently not be connected to anything? Stay safe, folks.
I accidently melted this cable. Where do I get another one? UK.
This guy had his fan wires smoke and mentions in the comments that the power supply wires also smoke, we NEED to have a warning about the flaws in the Anet A8 front and center.
I was thinking of installing one of these on my Anet A8 with Ramps 1.6. What pins do they need to be connected to on the Ramps board?
Enclosure almost complete, just need to make the door
My job is really stressful...
Roast my AnetA8
I’ve attempted this 3 times to no avail and I no longer have a clue on what’s wrong
I find myself lucky I found this quite early...
Difference in print quality after one week
Just finished assembling and troubleshooting my new A8! (Currently printing a Y belt tightener)

Adding wire tidies... Knew it was going to happen.... And so it did... I'm now banned from scissors 🤣

IKEA enclosure (description in comments)
For Roughly $6 USD - This Cross bar has been the best mod ive done yet.

Capabilities of the Anet A8!
Prusa Mk3s extruder assembly drops onto the anet a8 x axis
What can I do to enhance the quality of my print ?
What can cause a Thermal Runaway Issue on a pretty much stock Anet A8? I did a PID tuning with the current setup and tested some fan configurations. In a test I also blowed air at the extruder and set all fans to max. but it handled it perfectly.
it's a start....
Weird zebra stripe type pattern...any ideas?
What causes these ripples in my first layer?
Print is having weird offsets like this. And is overextruding(I think). Any ideas on how to fix? (New to 3D printing, sorry if noob question)
AM8 Magnetic heated upgrade complete
How long have you ran your Anet A8 in total?
What is causing my extruder to shred my filament?
UPDATE: From my last post. I had an issue where my print would be near perfect except for the standoffs. Heres a few things i did incase anyone else is having an issue. “Read in comments”
Anet a8 plus x rods after printing less than 1 kg of filament. Y rods aren't much better. One of X linear bushings lost some balls. Replaced the rods and installed Drylins, quality became so much better. Why the hell Anet provides ball-bearing ones?
What could be happening for my prints to look like this?
Just traded some labor for this setup. Slightly used and improved still needs some work.
Why does this happe?
No supports 100% amazed it turned out
Any idea what’s causing these lines? I’ve already PID tuned and worked with temperature, but that doesn’t appear to be the issue.
I printed out a phone case on my Anet A8 and the back looks like this. Is there any way to fix it? (Zyltech PLA)
Soo yesterday about one fourth of my screen turned white. Does anybody know how to fix it? I have a normal Anet Board
Underextrusion. Is this properly aligned?
How to improve this print further. Is it a cooling problem? The stock fan I have on it now is running really rough
Finally got a print bed surface - no more painters tape or craft glue
Just kicked off a really big print...
Anet is making petg its little bitch
Posted about this earlier but I am still having consistent issues, on every print. I bought new fiberglass belt, I have both the x and y axes tensioned but I am still not entirely sure why this is still happening. If anyone has had this happen please let me know. Speed was 45 mm/s
This problem occurs frequently where the print gets shifted by a little bit, but I am not sure what the issue is. All parts are tensioned and the steel rods are lubricated. If anyone has any issues please let me know
After 19 hours of printing and half spool (19cm * 19cm * 12.5cm)
Overnight improvements. Left is today, right is one from yesterday. Sanding is a lot of work, but looks decent, and a thick coat of primer helps.
How do I get rid of the bowing at the corners.
Had to rebuild the hot end. New heater block, nozzle, and throat screw. SHINY!
I meen, that kinda is how it works
Just had a mosfet straight up explode (bottom left) after everything shutoff about 90% through a 12 hour print. 500W ATX PSU incoming. Stay frosty!
