At the RAPID 2015 conference, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers' (SME) Rapid Technologies & Additive Manufacturing (RTAM) Committee awarded the Afinia H800 the "Innovation Award".
The new Afinia H800+ has a build area 5x larger (10 x 8 x 8 inches) than the H480, and has many additional enhancements:
- Fully-enclosed system with HEPA filtration
- Fully-automated platform leveling and height sensing
- *WiFi Connectivity
- *Power loss print recovery and “out of filament” pause switch
- *Customizable nozzle and platform temperatures
- 30% faster
- Ultra-fine 100-micron print resolution
- One button filament color changing
- *Upgraded printhead and gantry system
- Smart support material technology
- Easy filament spool loading
* New to the H800+
Out-of-the-Box 3D Printing
The Afinia H-Series 3D Printers provide a true “Out-of-the-Box 3D Printing Experience” as the 3D Printers comes fully assembled with easy to install software for both the PC and Mac. The Afinia H-Series 3D Printers can prototype a part or model, within .10mm (4 thousandths of an inch) accuracy, that have 30% of the strength of injection molded parts.
The Afinia H800+ 3D printer won the?RAPID 2015 Exhibitor Innovation Award, which recognizes the most innovative new products or services exhibited at RAPID that are judged to have the greatest potential impact on the industry. Afinia 3D was selected as the recipient by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ (SME) Rapid Technologies & Additive Manufacturing (RTAM) Committee.
TechZone 360 also chose?the Afinia H800+ 3D Printer for their 2015 3D Printing Excellence Award, citing Afinia 3D as a leader within the 3D printing industry. The TechZone 360 3D Printing Excellence Award identifies products, services, and applications that are?driving the growth and evolution of 3D Printing?from niche market hype to mainstream reality.
Easy to Use, Powerful Software
The 3D Printer 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.
3D Printer Plastic Filament
The Afinia H800+ 3D printer uses inexpensive, high-quality PLA and Premium ABS?filament for 3D printing. Afinia offers an array of plastic filament colors including: natural, black, red, blue, yellow and green.?The H800+ allows custom temperature setting of both the extruder and the platform to allow for a broader range of filaments to be used such as flexible and PETG filaments.
