Revo's for Bambu X1 Carbon

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.

Yes I’m aware, thats why I’m asking. I want to know if they can keep up with flow and avoid the errors. Also can we see a photo of the heating element on its own or at least with the silicone sock removed.

It looks near identical to the 45W revo. And no, I haven’t ran into that issue you mentioned, not sure about OP.

I have not gotten any errors or issues as of yet and those printers print non stop. Nor any issues when printing the test. Now as soon as i saw issues on the test i stopped could i have seen something if i let it go on. who knows but its been flawless so far

Would love to see you run a max flow test with a good PLA so I can compare to the Ali CHT nozzles as the Panda is quite pricey.

On my next order i will order some PLA i just dont print with it only for the support interface layer and i am low on it anyways.

Awesome, looking forward to it. I would run a PETG test myself to compare, but the only kind I have is CF variant as I print mostly PLA, ASA and PA.

Here is what my X1 can do with 0.6 CHT nozzle and dual heater mod. High flow PLA and temp bump. Started at 20mm³/s and went up by 1mm per 1mm³/s. So nice and smooth up to 46mm³/s, up to 50mm³/s with a few skips and imperfection and finally a line failure at 54mm³/s.

Wish you could drop the project here, i would run the exact test as what you ran to give you and exact comparison.

Its the built in test from the Orca slicer. If you go to “Calibration:More:Max flow test” and the settings are Starting from 20mm³/s up to 60mm³/s in 1mm increments. I also bumped the temp a bit higher then 220 as it got higher up. If you are going to do 0.4mm nozzle, I can redo mine as well with 0.4mm.

I will give it a try again but orca does not work well at all especially with custom coded filaments on the printer it crashes all the time not knowing what todo with filaments that are not in its DB and it has no idea how to pull it from the printer. I filed a bug when Bambu Released the feature but dont think Orca has done anything with custom filament features or have fixed it.

If its still an issue will run the one i have on Bambu Slicer

With macOS orca slicer works perfectly with custom filaments. You must be on windows?

Also any profile you choose in orca will override the AMS setting anyways including pressure advance etc. So if you are not printing from the mobile app, it make no difference.

This is very interesting, and nice results. By “dual heater mod”, do you mean you run two stock heaters in parallel, for 80W? And if so, are you just taking your chances or have you confirmed this is supported by the driving circuitry in the long run?

I’ve same question as temptation to install a 88W cartridge (Rapido 2 heater) is high (haven’t found a 60W).

88W at 24V it’s ~3.7A.

As far as I know, a copper wire of 21-22AWG should be fine, but I’ve no idea what are the specs of the wires used by Bambu.

Really interested about this dual heater mod.
