Bambu Studio has released version 1.8.2 – offering new 3D printing capabilities by enabling true integration of third-party filaments into the Bambu Lab ecosystem. This latest version offers significant enhancements in material compatibility, user collaboration, and printing flexibility.

Key highlights include third-party material integration, with users now able to easily assign third-party materials to AMS units – particularly advantageous for multi-material printing with non-standard materials, expanding the creative possibilities for designers and hobbyists alike; and access to community-driven material profiles by allowing the download and sharing of third-party filament and processing profiles – mirroring the material marketplaces of UltiMaker, Raise3D, and Fusion3, simplifying the learning curve for handling non-standard materials.

Features include custom filament creation, where users can set up their unique filament profiles directly in the software – eliminating the previous limitations and troubles associated with AMS mapping; support for custom third-party printers, with users now able to create printer presets automatically – a major improvement over the manual adjustments required previously; supports for the export and import of printer, filament, and process profiles – offering greater flexibility and ease of use; support for Bambu A1 printer; an automatic flush volume calculation feature to optimize multi-color printing and eliminate filament waste; and several user experience enhancements including no popups when sending to print, automatic object arrangement on the plate, and a new connector function in split tools.

Notable improvements

Bambu Lab’s platform now boasts improved auto lift type detection – reducing gcode export time significantly; nozzle diameter and hardness detection to ensure the compatibility of the nozzle with the selected filament – reducing the risk of clogging and wear; enhanced support for device file management for P1P, P1S, and A1 mini printers; improved display of black models and the addition of Tree Organic as a new support style; and the inclusion of features like improved patch connections in multi-material painting, model search by name, an ‘Auto Bed Type’ function, and more.

User-centric updates

Users can now set optimal model positions, modify layer height profiles, and adjust the ironing angle for improved printing results; and the auto-arranging feature has been upgraded to allow more filaments of different printing temperatures to be placed on the same plate. Interface improvements include a repositioned revert button, daily tips on the slicing progress bar, and enhanced visibility for dark models in dark mode.  The update also includes the addition of the Bambu TPU 95A HF filament, support for Creality’s K1 and K1 Max 3D printer models, and more.
