Bambu Lab has been a prominent player in the desktop 3D printing arena, known for its innovative solutions such as the original X1 series, P1S, P1P 3D printers and the AMS Multi-color Solution. Now, they’re back with their latest offering, the Bambu Lab A1 Mini. This new addition is designed to be both swift and cost-effective, further enhancing Bambu Lab’s reputation for affordable 3D printing solutions.
The A1 Mini introduces a fresh twist. It adopts a bed slinger design, a popular choice for budget-friendly desktop FDM 3D printers. This design differs from the conventional CoreXY method, known for its speed, stability, and ability to efficiently print tall vertical objects.
In essence, Bambu Lab continues to push the boundaries in the 3D printing industry with the introduction of the A1 Mini, providing a high-speed and budget-friendly option within their product lineup.
Bambu Lab initially aimed to move away from bed slingers in their product lineup, but the A1 Mini marks a departure from this strategy. Bambu Labs asserts that this bed slinger will deliver CoreXY-level speed and high-quality precision. This achievement is attributed to several key features, including a sturdy frame, all-metal rails, a nozzle pressure sensor, accelerometers, a powerful MCU (Microcontroller Unit), and an advanced motion control system. These elements combine to create significant anticipation for the A1 Mini, positioning it as a much-anticipated, cost-effective option in the market.
Undoubtedly, adopting a bed slinger design has shaped the Bambu Lab A1 Mini, influencing both its characteristics and affordability. Unlike other offerings from the company, this model doesn’t feature a closed chamber. However, this choice comes with its own set of advantages. For instance, it incorporates a camera lens cover to address privacy concerns—a common consideration for users today. Moreover, Bambu Lab has taken steps to counteract traditional challenges associated with bed slingers. They’ve introduced features like all-metal rails for enhanced reliability, a comprehensive filament monitoring system encompassing runout and tangle sensors, real-time monitoring, and more.
But that’s not all. The Bambu Lab A1 Mini also offers the potential for multicolor printing, an option available with the AMS lite (not included in the basic model) as is standard with all Bambu Lab machines. It boasts full-auto calibration, eliminating the need for manual adjustments. Active flow rate compensation ensures smooth corners, and the printer operates quietly at under 48 dB. Even with an acceleration of 10,000 mm/s², it maintains precision. Additionally, it seamlessly integrates MakerWorld, Bambu Lab’s innovative software. Notably, nozzle switching has been optimized for efficiency.
The eagerly awaited Bambu Lab A1 Mini is currently available for pre-order exclusively on the official Bambu Lab website. For those in Malaysia, the good news is that it’s anticipated to make its way to the Malaysian market, with an expected arrival in the vicinity of mid to late December 2023. The basic model is set to offer remarkable value, with an estimated price tag below RM2000. Additionally, for enthusiasts looking for the full experience, the A1 Mini Combo, which includes the AMS lite for multicolor printing, is expected to be priced at approximately RM3000. This exciting release is poised to bring accessible 3D printing to a wide range of users.
