Hoping a Christmas sale is planned

Hoping things like the AMS and other add ons go on a Christmas sale. (hint, hint, BambuLab) :wink: :slightly_smiling_face:

If there’s one thing I love about China, it’s that you can place modified express orders on December 23rd that will arrive on December 28th by DHL… Try a discount requwest for China’s New Year, this they may can understand :partying_face:

Well, I’ve seen a lot of Bambu Lab advertising on the screen today - No advertising for the A1, they advertising always the X1. I think prices anyway need to by adjustments in generally become nothing new was coming out and I’m now getting very excited about the CoPrint Chroma PAD… So I have to save money for the summer and save on Christmas gifts for myself :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Well, the X1 is still good but now 1500 euros for a 2 year old printer? So this lead is gone… and if they get hit with copying rights lawsuits (Makerworld), than may the spare parts supplies in the Western world will get under a littel pressure. Well, as long they did the cash, everthing is fine…

My .02 cents. The x1 was for profit (x1e takes this profit margin through the roof) and the a1 was just a stab at the competition for 0 reason. Theres no way they are making a decent profit on the a1. They dont want global leadership, they want to be the only printer company left. Again, my .02 cents based on manufacturing knowledge. Im still searching for their innovation without replication.

Hi StreetSport,

Agree with you and with your origins you recognize it like I do with my years of experience in China…

But they never will achieve this. Prusa is now entering the largest growth market with its Pro series. Brother talks about central printers, Bosch now even offers their printers as annual rentals with full operation, which means that apart from sending the parts to the printer you don’t have to do anything; the maintenance is then carried out entirely by Bosch.

And what Bambulab has? The first printer that has nothing new but almost everyone can afford, the X1 and a A1 which will only push the prices for the X1 into the ground as well and Makerworld which now represents a huge financial risk due to copyright infringement.

Well done - thank you, I’ll gladly to save all those money… :kissing_heart: An if they get their money safe on a Bank in e.g. Singapore, they can go into Retirement so for Bambulab everything is fine as well… You never have to explain to people from a communist country how to get the money to a secur place - and that they have to earn it quickly before someone comes.

And as long you just own one Bambulab you get your expiriance as well and thats more worth then money, becouse thats the future money :wink:

Have a look Teaching Tech’s latest video on the Prusa XL, it looks like rubbish to me.

The Prusa XL is not in there new Pro Serie - The Pro series is probably in a completely different price range…

Yeah those the acquired company’s products they do look good. But the 2 new prusas are having some serious issues.

I don’t know - this market is exploding, it’s hard to keep track of it. But the Prusa Pro HT90, that could be pretty damn interesting in the area of ​​operational maintenance for more expensive infrastructures… where the printer doesn’t have to running but has to be delivered if the clock starts to run… Deep sea ships, oil rigs, large food production and so on. Or simply said any infrastructure that keeps the entire infrastructure running with basic needs, there the new Pro series from Prusa certainly shouldn’t have any sales problems at all…

Looks like a completely new design? I’m not familiar with prusa printers, have they made a delta printer before? The XL is also a completely new design, if the HT90 goes as well as the XL it’s going to be interesting to watch…

Well, that looks more like the price range of the Leica BLK360 G1 - But when making estimates in this class, I often under or overestimate fast by $10,000. Finding the right judge in this class is just damn difficult… But if no prices are mentioned, it rarely be sold for less than 10,000 USD… and they still have a medical model - Only the registration and prototype tests cost will may drive the Bambulab budget miles under the ground and then we didn’t even talk about the development costs in case of a Medical product… If that works, they may just will be using their tip box for the printer development of the private market.

Just look at this Video of Zortrax’s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mYMkbbcG4Y with keywords such as European Space Agency, Deep Space Applications, Railway Classification, Defense and so on… All the keywords probably already use a complete Bambulab budget for the simplest profe of concept.

Do you know if the CoPrint will work iwth the x1c?

And way you ever will do this? Is there a reason behind which I can`t see?

I don’t think so and if yes you will lose a lot of benefits were you paying for in the sense pay twice and get the half…… but may you see somthing which I can`t see. TPU will by for sure a whole system change but there is something better showing up next summer but they do not confirm the AMS with the TPU yet. And since they are already struggling with the updates for the P1S, I don’t think will by able to include a single CX-I extruder on the X1C. Bambulab are smart buyers who get it cheaply in a package. Hide behind statics for an XL design - That’s may why it takes years for a lubricant recommendation and WD40 for the A1… no more questions. WD 40 is may more a cleaner than a lubricant. But the silicon greas for the X1C in the X1C manual, this was a clever recomendation.

And Actual you get even a Creality CR-M4 on sale below 500 USD. I was thinking a little about but finally, not interested on any bed slinger at all. And now I may get way they rush so much with the A1 since if they don`t show up with a big hit in 3 months – so if they have the big hit ready they can not show up with the A1 beside and if they do not have the big hit they need to louche otherwise the last sales for the A1 are also gone.

The reason for me is the duration of prints. I love the AMS, but for complex color schemes a simple model with complex color ends up taking a very long time.

Just from my perspective, which doesn’t always have to be correct:

Well, than may you have to look on a whole system change. I’m not thinking about it at the moment because a lot will change until it’s here and on the other hand, color changes are so rare for me - well, there are people which this point getting important so I can undestand you point of view with the Idear.

The X1 is anything but not maintenance-friendly and the conversion is accordingly too. Quickly mount another print head - the machine is simply not made for that. Out of the box and printed - you can’t have both good sides. The X1C certainly still has its advantages - especially since the printer has already been paid off in my case, so I’m basically not upset.

I don’t have to start doing the math, I think that with Coprint and a new printer it will not cost over 1000 USD, so you still have to get the X1C with its strengths around the corner and may solve the upcoming knowledge from your experience with a new system (which can also be a used printer at a reasonable price or a newer model from Bambulab and may by resailing the existing X1C if you ca not use it`s strength because it doesn’t fit your needs does not mean that there are no others who could use it).

Unfortunately, the old AMS’s don’t work with the new printers. So they lost their customer connection. In other words, everyone now has to calculate with the complete replacement and can no longer credit existing hardware… which is also a voluntary exit point for the customer.

Just yesterday I saw a video where someone had an several X1C, K1 and several Ender 5 Plus. K1 problems, but they are working on it (but may never can solve it - they are now in a different world where no one solves their problems anymore). The Ender 5 Plus CoreXY simply still has a format and is not closed so cheap and ready… but you just have to have several and just convert one only? Well, as I said, a lot will definitely happen in 3 months so. The solution will come in time… For the first time, those who want to sell have to solve the current problems, so I won’t spend three months racking my brains over solutions. Look at what’s coming and whoever delivers is welcome. They’re currently coming from all corners and sprouting like mushrooms.
