The Afinia H480 Sale is a user-friendly printer, but what it boasts in user-friendliness lacks in function. With a price range of $1000-$2000, the Afinia H480 is one of the cheaper 3D printers on the market.

The AFINIA H480 3D Printer is pre-assembled when you buy it, which means that you do not have to toil with small pieces and confusing directions to just assemble the device to make it ready to use.

In the following few sections, we will discuss the essential features and functions of the Afinia H480 Sale and will analyze as to present an overview of this printer’s performance and functionality, especially for personal use.

Independent Functionality Afinia H480 Sale

The technology behind the Afinia H480 Sale allows it to work just as well in standalone mode as it does when connected to a computer or laptop. This point suggests that if already you have begun your design, the USB cable can be disconnected, and the project you are working on will complete in its entirety with no interruptions or errors.


Though this printer can work well when disconnected from a computer, the items it can print are quite small, measuring in at only about 5.5 x 5.5 x 5.5 inches.

Filaments Afinia H480 Sale

The Afinia H480 operates at a print speed of 30mm per second. This speed is slower than most other printers on the market though there is no doubt that the extra time it takes to turn designs into objects is well worth it.

The variety of objects you can create is astounding and will undoubtedly make up for the slower printing speeds. The two filaments accepted by the Afinia H480 Sale are ABS and PLA. Those are the two most common filaments available.

Included with the Afinia H480 Sale is a standard white filament much like what you will find included with just about every other personal 3D printer on the market. The purchase pack includes only one white filament. Nevertheless, the Afinia website sells filament in a variety of other colors as to make your designs more appealing.

Safety Precautions Afinia H480 Sale

One of the biggest drawbacks to the Afinia H480 Sale is the fact that it poses a potential safety concern to those who use it.

The composition plate must heat up to 110°C to complete a 3D print. As a consequence; you need to be cautious when working with this device. This hot temperature, coupled with a relatively unenclosed printing plate means that young children who may come across the printer are at risk of putting their hands on it and severely hurting themselves. Luckily there is safety instruction included with the printer which explains all the necessary precautions.

Software Afinia H480 Sale

The Afinia H480 does not require you to spend an excessive amount of money on software. The package includes a compatible software with your purchase. Also included are a USB cable and a power supply, though these are standard additions to most 3D printers.

It is imperative that you do not neglect your USB cable because that is the only way which your printer can communicate with your computer. Unlike many other personal 3D printers, the Afinia H is not able to operate wirelessly.
