Industrial-looking printer with great print result Posted by: from: Minneapolis, MN on The price (currently $1,200) is middle of the range, but its quality is top-notch. This is a printer that can give you the accuracy and quality needed for your projects. THE PRINTER The Afinia H480 is a solid printer with an open and almost industrial robot feel to it. There are a couple of covers on it that have been 3D printed, which gave an initial impression of being a cheap printer, but the print quality has been the best and most accurate of all our printers tested. It does require attaching a sensor during the process of leveling the bed. This step is a little more involved than other printers, but isn't difficult once you've done it a few times. The filament runs up from a spool on the left side of the printer and loops back down to the extruder head. Loading and unloading filament and calibration is started from the software. The filament never jammed on us or got stuck in any parts, since it's such a clear and short run. THE SOFTWARE Afinia is available for both Mac and PC. The software is simple and gives you the basic move, scale and rotate features. You can adjust the print quality and the fill amount and pattern. Rafts and supports are available for prints with overhang and to help give you a nice, clean bottom surface. PRINTING The bed is a small, square board with holes in it to help the filament adhere. The holes do not need to be cleaned out between prints, and after a while, you'll have a board with filament filling most of the holes without any impact on future prints. Cleanup is simple since there is no glue to clean off the bed. I did use the scraper to clean off any excess material left after a print, and noticed that using a clean cloth and some alcohol to clean the board could help if the filament isn't sticking as nicely on some large flat prints. Rafts on this printer come off very clean with the provided scraper. This will give you a nice clean surface. Supports are easy to remove, but may require a bit of time if a lot of them were used for your print. OVERALL: The Afinia H480 delivers high-quality and accurate prints. If you're looking to print parts and need them to fit together without requiring a lot of sanding to fit, this printer can handle it. If you don't need to print items larger than a 5-inch cube, you can get some really good, quality prints. Pros: -- Best quality prints of any printer we tested. -- Heated bed for ABS. -- Rafts and supports remove easily from printed objects. Cons: -- Small print bed. -- Saw some lifting off the edge of large prints, without fine-tuning of the extruder nozzle height and cleaning the bed of all oils. With that, we still got a little lift, but it was manageable. -- The industrial look and feel of the printer will not be for everyone.
