Chanhassen, MN – August 2, 2013 –AFINIA’s award-winning H479 desktop 3D printer and supplies are now being sold online by Best Buy, CDW, STAPLES Canada, Tiger Direct and B&H Photo Video.

3D printers apply very thin layers of ABS or PLA plastic in precise patterns, which are stacked and fused together to form 3D objects. The AFINIA 3D printer has rapidly become one of the most well-known products in the desktop 3d printing space because of its ease-of-use, low price point, and remarkable output resolution.

“We are pleased that these nationally-recognized companies have selected AFINIA 3D printers to be on their e-commerce sites.”, says Mitch Ackmann, President of Afinia, “Consumer demand for 3D printers is growing rapidly, so makes sense that they would offer their customers our technology. “

Afinia emerged as a leader in desktop 3D printing when named “Best Overall Experience” over 15 manufacturers in Make: Magazine’s “Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing”. The review hailed the AFINIA as a stand out, naming it “one of our favorite 3D printers”, and pointing out that “straight out of the box… we printed some of the best-looking examples of the challenge prints.” The review concluded with the high praise that “the AFINIA offered the best printing quality with the least amount of effort”.

The AFINIA H-Series can print a part or model up to 5” x 5” x 5”, with a resolution of 150 microns (6 thousandths of an inch). The AFINIA’s 3D printer software imports .STL files, created with CAD/CAM software or downloaded from a growing number of online libraries. It then automatically generates the support material that a design requires. The AFINIA H-Series connects to a PC or Mac with a USB cable and stores the print job so laptop users are free to unplug the USB cable and go about their business. The Afinia 3D printer uses inexpensive plastic filament that is available in more than 20 different colors.
