The M8R2 is the evolution of the Anet A8 (prusa I3 style) with an all-metal structure (Anet A8 acrylic structure) and support brackets for both Z-axes for more axis stability. This 3D printer will allow you to make very good quality parts with our recommendations or if you have some experience!
The M8R2 is equipped with a double cyclops extrusion (two in one out, easily changed to double chimera extrusion two in two out) with Teflon inside (easily changed to Teflon free extrusion), allowing you to print at temperatures up to 250°C (Teflon deforms/melts at 250°C). The extruder is already mounted. It is also equipped with a metal printing bed with heating mat. These configurations will allow you to print virtually any type of filament.
The M8R2 is a bowden version (engine remote to the outside) for a lighter print head. Its X, Y and Z movements are independent on linear bearings, two axes (and motors) in Z for more stability of the plate and a maximum printing volume. theoretical 22 x 22 x 24cm. (X,Y,Z).
These printers are delivered as a kit, however they can also be delivered assembled, adjusted and tested if you wish!

One 512MB SD card (with instructions inside), one red A4988 motor driver with additional heat sink, 2 x 25gr. of PLA filament (random colour), a filament spool holder, 45° bent cutters, adhesive and some assembly tools.
Flexible filaments can have problems with bowden type, our TPU98A (click on it for more info) is a flexible filament designed for bowden type. With Capricorn teflon (click on it for + info) with an inner diameter of 1.9mm. You will be able to print most flexible filaments.
Abrasive filaments such as Carbon-P, Metal etc., can wear out the nozzle very quickly, preferably change to a hardened steel nozzle (click on it for more info).
For a better adhesion to the printing plate, we suggest the EZ-Stick from Gecko Tek (click on it for more info). A tailor-made choice, easy to apply and for easy removal of parts!
