The Afinia H480 3D Printer: consistently named Make Magazine's Most Reliable Performer.
"The Afinia H-Series Desktop 3D printer is the most approachable model we’ve reviewed, and we’d recommend it to anyone serious about getting started with 3D printing."
— Rich Brown, Senior Editor cnet.com
The Afinia H480 3D printer provides a true out-of-the-box 3D printing experience. It comes fully assembled and ready to use with easy-to-install software for PC and Mac.
The Afinia Software features an easy-to-use interface for preparing a digital model for printing. It can import STL files from any digital CAD program with ease, and users can customize the output file in terms of the amount of support material and "raft" (base support) that is printed. Support material is designed to break away with relative ease, and the 3D printer comes with a set of tools to aid in removing support. Use the software's utilities to calibrate and maintain your 3D printer.
The Afinia H480 uses inexpensive, high-quality ABS and PLA plastic filament available in a wide array of colors. The 3D printer is also portable at weighing under 11 lbs and can operate without a USB connection to the computer once the print has begun.
