Review: Bambu Lab A1 Mini


There are so many fdm 3D printer brands that have been on the market for years and yet, it’s one of the latest entrants that has quite simply revolutionized the sector in just 2 years. The brand? Bambu Lab. Its latest printer? The A1 Mini.

At a time when everyone is bringing out larger-format printers. Bambu Lab has once again surprised us with a mini version.

It’s a bold choice, given that fans have been waiting for an XL printer. But the reasoning is surely even better: 95% of prints are actually small, and Bambu Lab is already ahead of the game technologically, so we need to democratize small-format, low-cost 3D printing to attract new users.

Bambu Lab is a Chinese company, but the products could just as easily come from Germany with this attention to detail and material quality.
