US-based 3D printing solutions provider Afinia 3D has announced the shipping of its new Afinia H440 3D Printer.
This novel system is priced at $1,099. The new Afinia H440 3D printer is the “pinnacle” of affordability, dependability, and usability. It’s ideal for engineers, hobbyists, and educators looking for a quick and simple “out-of-the-box experience”, claims the company.
Enhanced features from Afinia H440 that facilitate safe and easy 3D printing
The dimensions of the Afinia H440 are 7.9 x 7.9 x 7.9 inches. Users can wirelessly transfer print jobs from a desktop or smartphone app using wifi. The system has a touchscreen control that allows basic operations to be performed without the need for a computer. According to the company, the 3D printer has better resolution and provides layer thickness as fine as 0.1mm.
Power failure protection is another improved feature that helps users resume printing from where a print was stopped due to power failure. When the system runs out of filament, the 3D printer comes to a halt, allowing users to substitute the filament and continue printing.
Other additional features include automatic nozzle height detection. This feature supports the user in making sure their print adheres firmly to the print bed. The software-assisted leveling feature compensates for warped or flawed print surfaces, allowing users to print successfully. Furthermore, the Afinia H440’s HEPA air filtration feature minimizes 3D printing air emissions for a safer 3D printing environment.
