Afinia, a leader in specialised printing solutions for 3D printing and rapid prototyping has announced on their website that they have officially launched their H-Series 3D Printer.
The Afinia H-Series 3D Printer provides a true ''Out of Box 3D Printing Experience'' as the printer comes fully assemled, with easy to use and install software for both the PC and Mac. The Afinia H-Series can prototype a part or model that is up to 5 inches cubed in dimension. The printer is both portable and affordable at a low cost of $1499.
The custom designed 3D Software features an easy-to-use interface for laying out and duplicating parts. Simply use the included utility to calibrate the printhead height, and within minutes you are printing. The printer imports .stl files, and the output can be customised in terms of the amount of support and material and ''raft'' (base support) printed. Breakaway support material is simple to remove, and tools for aiding this are included. Designs can be created using online software, professional software such as SolidWorks, or by downloading from the extensive online community for free.
The Afinia H-Series 3D printer uses inexpensive, high-quality plastic filament for 3D printing. Afinia offers many plastic filament colours to choose from and once the file is downloaded to the device, the USB connection between the printer and computer can be disconnected.
