Differences to the AnkerMake M5
The AnkerMake M5C is largely based on the technology of its predecessor, the AnkerMake M5. However, there are also important differences.
Compared to the predecessor model AnkerMake M5, the new model M5C has a slim design. It's compact (466 x 374 x 480 millimeters) and light (11 kilograms) , making it an ideal choice for smaller workspaces.
At 5 x 220 x 220 millimeters, the M250C's volume is slightly smaller than the 235 x 235 x 250 millimeters of the M5. In addition, the M5C model omits features such as a touchscreen and camera and is equipped with a single instead of dual Y-axis belt. But what he lacks in looks, he makes up for in strength.
Here are the differences in the comparison:

Stable and fast
With wear-resistant components, AnkerMake wants to ensure the longest possible service life. The double Z-axes are made of stainless steel and an aluminum base ensures the most stable and low-vibration operation possible.
The all-metal hotend reaches temperatures of up to 300 degrees Celsius and supports common materials such as PET, ABS, TPU, PA and many more. Printing takes place with a high precision of 0,1 millimeters on a flexible PEI magnetic plate.
What sets the AnkerMake M5C apart from its competitors is its remarkable print speed. With a standard print speed of 250mm/s, it beats most competitors by a whopping 75%.
Using the PowerBoost™ 2.0 smoothing algorithm and an improved motion control system, the M5C can achieve impressive print speeds of up to 500 mm/s and an acceleration of 5000 mm/s² in high speed mode.
Ease of use
The 3D printer is controlled via the AnkerMake app, which is available for iOS and Android, and via the AnkerMake slicer software, which can be downloaded for Windows and MacOS.
Users can connect the M5C to a smartphone or laptop via both WiFi and Bluetooth, allowing them to enjoy full printing control – anytime, anywhere.
Price and availability
The AnkerMake M5C can be purchased from today for 449 euros at the AnkerMake website be pre-ordered. Delivery is scheduled for mid-August.
