The Afinia H-Series 3D Printer provides a true out-of-the-box 3D printing experience as the 3D Printer comes fully assembled with easy to install software for both the PC and Mac. The Afinia H479 3D Printer can prototype a part or model that is up to 5 inches cubed in dimensions. The output is accurate to within .15mm (6 thousandths of an inch), and has 30% of the strength of injection molded parts. The 3D Software features an easy-to-use interface for laying out, orienting, duplicating, and scaling parts. Simply use the included utility to calibrate the printhead height, and within minutes you are printing. It easily imports STL files, and the output can be customized in terms of the amount of support material and “raft” (base support) printed. Breakaway support material is simple to remove, and tools for aiding the breakaway are included. Design files for 3D printing can be created using online software, professional software such as SolidWorks™, or by downloading from the extensive online 3D printer community for free. The Afinia H479 printer uses inexpensive, high-quality plastic filament for 3D printing. Afinia offers an array of plastic filament colors including: natural, black, red, blue, yellow and green. The portable Afinia H-Series 3D Printer is just under 11lbs making it easy to transport. It can also be operated in standalone mode. Once the file is downloaded to the device, the USB connection between the 3D printer and computer can be disconnected even while printing.
