Afinia 3D's H800 3D Printer is gaining attention. The printer recently won the RAPID 2015 Exhibitor Innovation Award. The Afinia 3D H800 was selected by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Rapid Technologies & Additive Manufacturing (RTAM) Committee.

"RAPID would like to congratulate Afinia 3D on winning the RAPID 2015 Exhibitor Innovation Award for their Afinia H800 3D Printer. The RAPID Exhibitor Innovation Award recognizes the most innovative new products or services exhibited at RAPID that are judged to have the greatest potential impact on the industry," said Maria Conrado, Event Manager.

John Westrum, Afinia 3D's Vice President, and Zack Sterzinger, Sales Representative, were happy to accept the award while exhibiting the Afinia 3D printers at the RAPID event. "We've listened to our customers and used their feedback to provide a printer that we feel will truly meet their needs," said Westrum. "The H800 has undergone months of testing and preparation to ensure that it meets the high standards that Afinia 3D sets for all of our products. We are looking forward to seeing what our customers will create with the bigger build area."

The Afinia H800 3D Printer has a build area 5x larger (10 x 8 x 8 inches) than the Afinia H480, and includes additional enhancements such as a HEPA filtration system, fully-automated leveling and height sensing, ultra-fine 100-micron print resolution, and one button filament changing. Although the H800 has many more features than the H480, the H800 still provides an "out-of-the-box 3D printing experience," arriving fully assembled with easy to install software for PC and Mac.

Pre-orders for the H800 begin shipping in June, with new orders shipping in July. To add your name to Afinia 3D's waiting list for the H800, please visit their online store.

IntervalZero’s RTX64

IntervalZero's RTX64

RTX64 turns the Microsoft 64-bit Windows operating system into a Real-time operating system (RTOS). RTX64 enhances Windows by providing hard real-time and control capabilities to a general purpose operating system that is familiar to both developers and end users. RTX64 consists of a separate real-time subsystem (RTSS) that schedules and controls all RTSS applications independently of Windows.RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT or PROFINET) to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and radically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time.
