The P1S 3D Printer from Bambu Lab is part of the company’s low-cost, high quality consumer desktop FDM 3D printers. Building off of the design of the P1P, the P1S model printer focuses on a more advanced design featuring upgraded parts and a more durable frame. The P1S has even been tested firsthand in the 3Dnatives Lab to put it through its paces.

Features of the Bambu Lab P1S

The P1S comes ready to go, fresh out of the box; a feature that is prominent in all Bambu Labs printers. However, it does have some unique upgrades over the P1P. First, the weight of the printer has risen to 12.9 kg in part due to the enclosed plastic and glass shell. The Bambu Lab P1S also comes with an integrated serious of cooling and regulator fans on closed loop control, complete with an activated carbon air filter.

The P1S system comes with auto bed leveling, built-in vibration and extrusion compensation as standard. Within the printer, the build plate is engineered for rapid heating and cooling, with the heat plate able to reach up to 100℃, and a maximum temperature of 300℃ within the all-metal hot end made of hardened steel. The printer is able to easily support a few more filament types over the P1P including ABS and ASA. With a filament run-out sensor, direct-drive extruder and semi-automatic tensioning belts, the P1S is prepped for durability over the course of many prints.

The Bambu Lab P1S printer syncs seamlessly with Bambu Lab’s own slicing software – Bambu Studio, and has additional capabilities for remote monitoring and time-lapse recordings on mobile devices with their phone app, Bambu Handy. The P1S kit comes with the printer itself, hotend, build plate, PLA filament spool, unclogging pin and accessory box. Similar to the X1, the P1S printer is also compatible with the Bambu Lab AMS filament storage system and can be purchased with the AMS included or separately for between $699 or $950 USD.
