Revo's for Bambu X1 Carbon

I don’t think the nozzles are bad… just their numbers on that document. Someone with the 0.6 nozzle using the numbers on that page may find PLA now prints slower than it does with the stock 0.4 nozzle and BBL profile, and may have issues printing PETG cleanly. But I’m not here to convince anyone of anything, just giving people a heads up that something is a little off there.

Could be i need to see if i have any extra rolls of PLA and i can run the test on that as well. I only use PLA as a support interface from time to time so not sure i have much in stock

Quoted from the firmware bug reporting thread, but I didn’t want to pollute it with OT.

1.40 mm LOL. Using normal Bambu sizes, a standard profile would have a layer height of 0.70 mm and a line width of 1.42 mm. No matter how powerful the heater is, the printer’s maximum E of 30 mm/s (72 mm³/s) would limit line speed to 81 mm/s.

Do you know the nozzle flat size for it? No matter what it is, you can have a line width of at least 3 mm… printing in vase mode with that must be terrific ASMR. It would be limited to 36 mm/s tops, probably lower.

E3D ripped off a good hotend then make it junk. Ran a micro and a 6 for some test on a MK3 and the next day the mosquito was back in it and those hotends were on Facebook marketplace for $30. Was really hoping for something close to the raptor.

Does anyone know the specs on the board I would be worried going from a 40w heater to a 60w heater unless I knew the specs.

Well it is a partnership that was signed off so clearly there is no issue. They would have required the 40W revo heater if there was an issue but allowed the 60W and signed off on it

It’s fine It’s only going to heat up so much it’s software control.

That wattage is just the maximum output that it can do.

You do have a point, still would like to know the specs for the board though.

Ordered one for good measure :joy:

@masc2279 is it the same height as the original hotend or did you have to modify the nozzle wiper?

Completely stock use no mods needed

The only thing i chaned since installing it is running temp towers and Max flow rate tests and i set these now i only mainly print in PETG so only ran test for PETG.

Added 10 deg to PETG Settings. - Bambu Had Set 255 i moved it to 265

0.4HF recomended flow 24 i got and set 26
0.6HF recomended flow 31 i got and set 35
0.8HF recomneded flow 38 I got and set 39

So the flows on the Revo Page for High flow were spot on and for me a but conservative bit, that might be becouse of the added temp.

Thanks. I mainly use Prusament when printing PETG and figured I’ll have to do some calibration prints for the filaments I use.

How did you get the hotend so early anyway? Mine’s on backorder till (late) March or something like that.

I had a friend who told me when it was going live on the site for ordering and i was one of the get my orders in. Granted mine had a Delivery of Jan 2nd but it was a week and a half later when it arived.

Dumb comment. A 1000W heating element would also be ‘software control’. That doesn’t mean the power supply, wiring, connectors, and switching elements are capable of driving a 1000W heater.

Oh one last thing if you did not notice in the write up you will need a hot end fan this is the only part not included in the Panda Revo Kit. Yes you can re use the one from the current nozzle but i personally like having backups so ordered new fans just for the Panda Revo.

I have a couple of spare hotend assemblies. But thanks for pointing out, I’ll probably order a spare fan with my next order from bambu just in case.

Where did you buy the kit?
I can’t find anything about it, even on Aliexpress :frowning:

Did you ever get a temperature error while running the max flow test? The stock heater is too weak for good flow with CHT hot ends, I am resorting to running dual heaters to compensate.

These are 60W heaters not the 45W stock heaters.
