New Bambu Lab X1 Color 3D Printer Launched on Kickstarter
A new 3D printer for simultaneous printing of several colors of filaments at once is presented on the Kickstarter crowdfunding site. In a short time, the Bambu Lab X1 3D printer project has collected more than 5 million USD and continues to actively collect orders. The peculiarity of the project is the advanced “stuffing”, high printing and acceleration speeds, additional accuracy control, including the elimination of vibrations and laser positioning, the “omnivorousness” of consumables.
