AMS versions

There seem to be a number of versions of the AMS about, typically identified by the support for the rollers. It woul dbe good to know which versions have what differences and which is the current one you will receive if you order today.

I don’t want to be gluing parts to my new AMS.


FYI. The one I bought was a v3 so I was pleased to see it was the version that is hopefully more sturdy

I ordered 10 days ago and i’ve received what i think is a “v3” version.

The “rollers” look now like this inside the AMS :

Another difference seems to be about the shape and dimensions of the bottom of the AMS :

  • v1 (and maybe v2) was a perfect square
  • (maybe v2) and cleary v3 are not exactly a square (back-width is 18 mm smaller than front-width)

This has to be taken in account if you want to print a “led case” to be put under the AMS (there are many ones on, but most of them are for v1 / perfect square). See comments of this one for example, which are speaking about the width differences between AMS versions : Bambu Lab X1 AMS Riser frame with Led’s

This is very annoying. Printed out the AMS support stands that fit the AMS that came with my X1Carbon. Then order another AMS unit that turned out to be be very different, and won’t fit the support stands.
Beginning to not trust Bambu Labs.

(Old thread but didnt find another good place for this and it might be useful for someone else).

Some of the AMS’s have two “ribs” in between the gear assemblies and on front of the roller bearings. This can significantly interfere with most of the desiccant containers that are available.

I believe the one I have is a version one but I havn’t been able to find another picture anywhere that conslusively says it its.

I have two other AMS’s that do not have this and they are atleast v2.

V1 - ribs

V2 - no ribs. Allows for a desiccant container to fit.
