Bambu Lab AMS – Innovation of 3D printing technology
Color, the ultimate expression of emotions, is brought to you by Bambu Lab’s Automatic Material System (AMS). You can now enjoy printing freely in multiple colors and materials.
Applicable to most materials such as PLA, ABS, ASA, PETG, PC, etc.
With AMS, Bambu Lab printers can use snap-away support material or dissolvable filament to minimize the pain of removing supports.
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.
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.
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.
When the filament at the toolhead 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 air printing.
For more detailed information please refer to filament entangled.
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.
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.
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.
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
