Exciting Updates on AnkerMake Software
Hey fellow makers,
We know you've been waiting for this, and we're happy to introduce new updates to the firmware, AnkerMake Slicer, and AnkerMake App coming this week.

AI Detection Changes

The main thing you'll notice is more accurate error detection, reducing wasted time and filament.
Previously, the AI camera compared every layer of the print with the original file and alerted you if the layers were below standard. Now, the AI camera checks successive layers and only sends an alert if multiple layers are below standard.
In addition, you'll notice a toggle and sensitivity setting that you can adjust. You can also choose if you want your 3D printer to pause when an error is detected.
Check out specific updates here:

Firmware and App

  • AI Camera Toggle
  • Sensitivity Setting
  • Option to Pause Prints

What's Next?

The AnkerMake team is working non-stop to continue improving your 3D printing experience. We plan to add an automatic arrangement for slicing files, real-time video streaming, shortcuts, an undo button, and a redo button.
When we're further along in the process, we'll let you know how they're going. In the meantime...
Keep Making,
The AnkerMake Team
