Bambu Lab AMS - Innovation of 3D printing Technology

Bambu Lab's Automatic Material System (AMS) allows users to express their creativity freely, exploring a wide spectrum of colors and materials in their prints. The AMS system goes the extra mile to enhance user experience with features such as keeping filament dry, detecting filament runout and winding issues, all while providing a reliable filament backup system.

If you plan to connect multiple AMS units together, you will need to purchase the AMS Hub.
This Add-On is compatible with the X1 and P1 Series Bambu Lab 3D Printers.

What's Included
  • AMS
  • PTFE Tube
  • Bus Cable - 6pin & 4pin
  • Spare Filament Cutter (x2)
  • PTFE Tube Connector
  • Filament Buffer
  • Reusable Spool (x3)
  • High Temperature Reusable Spool
* Filaments that are too soft, brittle or brasive are not compatible with the AMS, such as Bambu PET-CF/ TPU 95A, and other brand's TPE, TPV, PVA, PET-CF/GF, PA-CF/GF, PAHT-CF/GF,etc. If you prefer to use cardboard spools, we highly recommend using a spool adapter to reduce the risk of slippage and trapped debris in the AMS. For more detailed information please refer to Wiki article. Learn more about how AMS works.

Hassle-Free Support Removal

With AMS, Bambu Lab printers can use snap-away support material or dissolvable filament to minimize the pain of removing supports.

No More Filament Leftover

Without AMS, when the filament runs out, manual spool replacement interrupts printing and results in wasted filaments.

With AMS, there is a seamless transition to a new spool which keeps uninterrupted printing and minimizes waste.

Filament Backup

Your print never stops with automatic spool changing. With AMS filament backup function, never worry about running out of filament during your sleep or absence, ensuring a seamless and uninterrupted printing process, preventing any filament waste and promoting energy efficiency.

Advanced Intelligent System

Powered by a 32-bit MCU, sensor arrays, actuators, and a smart algorithm, the AMS has reached unprecedented levels of intelligence. It expertly manages filament loading and unloading, along with efficient fault detection and recovery.

For more detailed information please refer to AMS feeding system.

Filament Winding Detection

When the filament at the tool head encounters resistance, it may be that the filament is tangled or the spool is stuck, AMS can detect it immediately and suspend printing to avoid empty printing.

For more detailed information please refer to filament entangled.

Say Goodbye to Wet Filaments

Filament that has absorbed moisture can lead to print quality issues and poor layer adhesion, or even nozzle clogging that can lead to a failed print.

Keep the Filament Dry

The AMS has an air-tight seal and with the help of dessicant material, it absorbs moisture to keep the moisture away from Filament.

A Humidity Sensor also detects the humidity inside the AMS and provides information to the user when the humidity is higher or the dessicant may need to be replaced.

For best print quality, dry filament is required.

Automatic Filament Identification

Bambu Lab filaments use RFID which is read by the AMS to automatically identify and apply the best settings for your material.

The RFID tag is synchronized automatically to Bambu Studio.

Non Bambu Lab Filaments need to be manually configured in Bambu Studio or in the printer.

Support Up to 16 Colors

Each Bambu Lab AMS is composed of 4 filament slots, and up to 4 AMS can be installed in parallel and supports up to 16 colors for stunning prints that truly stand out. To achieve 16-color printing, connect 4 AMS via AMS hub.
