Following the results of the poll, I would like to make a pledge drive for a Bambu X1/P1P Printer.
The printer which we get will be dependant on the amount raised. The more we raise the, better the printer will be.
P1P - £679.00 GBP
X1 Carbon £1,179.00 GBP
The P1P will decrease the printing time for printed parts dramatically quoted between 40-70% reduction in print times. The printer will be capable of a wider range of materials (PLA, PETG, TPU, PVA, PET) out of the box. It also has built in lights and camera for print monitoring, a filament runout sensor, auto bed leveling, and power recovery.
The X1 carbon has all the features above but will also be capable of printing ABS, ASA, PA, PC, Carbon/ Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer filaments. (Though some of these filaments may require additional extraction)
Both printers have an increased maximum build volume 0f 256x256x256 mm compared to the current 210x210x205 on the ultimaker.
Both machines can also be upgraded after purchase with a multifilament changer to either print in multiple types of filament or multiple colours in a single print.
If any one else has any questions bout the proposed printers especially regarding specific projects, feel free to pop them below. If any one want so see how much faster their prints could be, Download the Bambu studio slicer and you can see the print times on these machines compared to the Ultimaker.
I’ve started off the pledge below.
