The Bambu Lab P1P is a compact desktop FDM 3D printer which boasts several unique features that set it apart from most devices in its class. The P1P is based on the platform of the company’s flagship X1 series and offers the same incredible print speed of 500 mm/s without sacrificing print quality. To achieve such impressive results, the 3D printer features CoreXY kinematics with linear rods on Z and Y axes and carbon rods on the X-axis for smooth movements. This allows for up to 20000 mm/s² acceleration while the active vibration compensation algorithm and pressure advance add to stability and make for consistent high-quality prints.
One of the most remarkable features of the P1P is its design. Just out of the box, the printer looks like an open cube. The purpose of such a solution is to allow users to customize the machine and give it a look that suits their personal preferences. On the company’s official website there are various side panel designs available for download. One can also create their own design and 3D print it.
The Bambu Lab P1P features automatic multipoint sensor-based bed leveling, and the Z-axis offset is also adjusted automatically. This function guarantees perfect first layer adhesion and prevents print failures. The flexible PEI-coated build plate also makes for better adhesion and easy removal of the finished prints. Among other smart features offered by the P1P 3D printer are power loss recovery, filament runout sensor, and the ability to add various upgrades, including the company’s system for multi-material printing (AMS), allowing it to combine 4 filaments in one project (and up to 16 filaments using four multi-material systems and the AMS hub). Since the launch of the P1P, the most popular add-ons have been a built-in camera and LED light, so the manufacturer has included them into the standard package without changing the price.

Printer controls and software
What’s in the box
Look and feel
The printer is equipped with a direct-drive extruder that ensures smooth filament feeding and facilitates flexible materials handling. Due to its sturdy design and vibration compensation mechanism, the P1P reliably prints dimensionally accurate parts of outstanding quality even at top speeds. If you are planning to print with temperature-sensitive materials, like ABS, you may want to design and print a full enclosure for better printing results.

The all-metal hotend is equipped with a stainless steel 0.4 mm nozzle and can heat up to 300 °C, providing compatibility with a wide range of thermoplastics, including PLA, PETG, PVA, PET, PA, PC, ABS, ASA, and flexibles. The hotend features an all-in-one design that speeds up heating and simplifies maintenance, but the nozzles are not interchangeable. That means you will have to replace the hotend as a whole in case you need another nozzle diameter. The manufacturer does not recommend printing abrasive materials, like fiber-reinforced composites, with a default nozzle, but you can purchase an optional hotend with a hardened steel nozzle with no limitations on filaments being used. The P1P is an open-material system that can print with proprietary and third-party filaments alike.
To reduce plastic waste, the manufacturer suggests utilizing reusable spools for their filaments. One can reuse the previous spool, print their own spool (the file comes with the printer), or purchase one.
The build volume of 256 x 256 x 256 mm is spacious enough for a desktop 3D printer and is suitable for small to medium objects printed as a whole. Larger models can be printed in parts and then assembled.
The Bambu Lab P1P is controlled via a 2.7" LCD screen with a control dial instead of a more conventional touchscreen. The modest display characteristics are compensated with the capability of remotely operating the machine via the Bambu Handy mobile app.
To prepare 3D models for printing, the manufacturer recommends using the proprietary Bambu Studio slicer which runs on Windows and macOS. Bambu Studio is capable and easy-to-use software that greatly adds to the convenience of working with the printer. The software provides a project-based workflow, supporting 3MF format, which offers many useful features, such as multi-plate support, a project resource manager, and assembly / part view. It also allows for remote print monitoring and management of multiple devices.
The machine features Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, the files can also be transferred to the printer via a microSD card.

Bambu Lab AMS (Automatic Material System)
The Bambu Lab AMS is an airtight box that houses four filament slots and is equipped with humidity sensors, keeping the filaments dry and ready to use. The system allows combining multiple materials in one project. The manufacturer does not recommend using flexibles and fiber composites with the AMS, except for Bambu PA-CF and PAHT-CF which have been specifically designed to be compatible with the system. Each AMS comes with four reusable filament spools.
Stainless steel extruder unit — P1P
The stainless steel extruder unit is equipped with double gears made from stainless steel, which provides increased extrusion force and prevents slippage. The extruder is suitable for most commonly used filaments and equipped with a special sensor that supports filament break detection to prevent print failures.
Hotend with nozzle
The Bambu Lab hotend features a unique all-in-one design that combines the heatsink, throat, heater block, and nozzle into a single unit. The nozzle selection guide below will help you choose the appropriate nozzle according to your printing tasks and materials being used.
|Nozzle diameter||Incompatible filaments||Applicable printing requirements|
|0.2 mm||Not allowed:
|Ultra-fine detail but long print time|
|0.4 mm||Not recommended:
filaments containing carbon fiber or glass fiber
|Fine detail with reasonable print time|
|0.6 / 0.8 mm||None||Less detail for shorter print time|
|Nozzle material||Hardness||Incompatible filaments|
|Hardened steel||55 – 60 HRC||None|
|Stainless steel||25 – 30 HRC||Filaments containing fiber, particles, metal powder|
Ceramic heater & thermistor — P1P (3 pcs)
The ceramic heater and thermistor for the Bambu Lab P1P 3D printer are combined into one module with an integrated terminal connector. The thermistor provides highly accurate temperature measurement. The range of operating temperatures is –10–300 °C. The ceramic heater heats the nozzle up to 300 °C.
PTFE tube (4 pcs)
The pack contains four PTFE tubes with the inner diameter of 2.5 mm and the outer diameter of 4 mm: 530 mm * 2, 30 mm * 2.
PTFE tube (8 pcs) — for AMS inside
The pack of eight PTFE tubes with the inner diameter of 2.5 mm and the outer diameter of 4 mm to be used with the AMS: 195 mm * 4, 230 mm * 4.
Replacement filament cutter (3 pcs)
Filament cutters are used to prevent clogging and help with material switching while using AMS.
Nozzle wiper (3 pcs)
Nozzle wipers are used to clean the nozzle from the excessive material coming out of it. This part is consumable and needs replacement when worn out.
Silicone sock for hotend (3 pcs)
The silicone sock for hotend ensures optimal thermal insulation and tear resistance as well as protects the nozzle from cooling air and plastic adhesion.
The Bambu Lab P1P 3D printer is available in black. Its printable side panels allow the user to create a custom device that fits perfectly into any environment.
