Bambu Lab delivers quieter 3D printing with new P1 series firmware

Bambu Lab’s latest firmware gives their P1 series 3D printers several feature upgrades

Bambu Lab have released a new firmware update for their P1 series of 3D printers to deliver a number of major improvements to the series. For starters, Motor Noise Cancelling has been added to the X1 series, enabling quieter 3D printing with the potential for less VFA (Vertical Fine Artifacts) on 3D printed objects. The update also allows P1 users to check MicroSD files remotely using Bambu’s Studio software.

Motor Noise Cancelling is the headline feature of Bambu Lab P1 series’ new firmware update. After updating your printer’s firmware, users can enter the printer’s control utilities menu and its calibration section. From here, users can calibrate the printer’s motor noise. The calibration process will take around 10 minutes, but after the process is complete, P1 series 3D printers will operate at much quieter levels.

In their video for their X1 series 3D printers, Bambu Lab stated that active noise cancellation can lower motor noise by 5-10 dB. That’s a huge drop in noise levels. Not bad for a free update. We expect similar noise level drops from P1 series 3D printers.

This month, Bambu Lab have been teasing a new 3D printer called the A1. This new 3D printer is a larger version of their A1 mini 3D printer. Like the A1 Mini, the larger A1 supports the company’s AMS lite multi-material tool.

You can join the discussion on the Bambu Lab P1 receiving active noise cancellation support on the OC3D Forums.
