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
The auto-leveling feature is used to compensate for a warped or uneven print surface. It is not designed to take the place of manually leveling the print platform. The Platform Calibration Probe attaches magnetically to the extruder head and connects to the printer via a data cable. The probe measures the height of the build platform at nine different points, and takes a little over 2 minutes to complete the calibration.
Nozzle Height Detection
The nozzle detection feature measures the nozzle height to ensure that it is the correct distance from the printing surface prior to printing. This process takes about 20 seconds to complete. Using the nozzle height detection feature is more accurate than setting the nozzle height manually; and helps models adhere securely to print surface during printing
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 plastic filament for 3D printing. Afinia offers an array of plastic filament colors including: natural, black, red, blue, yellow and green.
The portable Afinia H800 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.
