New Third-Party Panda Series Upgrades Unveiled for Bambu Lab 3D Printers


BIQU, a developer of 3D printing hardware situated in Shenzhen, has proudly announced a collection of plug and play enhancements and modifications for the P, X, and A Series 3D printers of Bambu Lab.

Featured in the Panda Series, these improvements include the Panda Revo Hotend, the Panda Lux LED upgrade set, the protective leather cover of Panda Fur, and the Panda nPEI Build Plate.

The latest addition to the Panda Series is the Panda Touch, introduced by BIGTREETECH: a partner brand of BIQU that excels in the electronics of 3D printing. The Panda Touch is a five-inch touchscreen that connects to Bambu 3D printers through a USB-C connection and a mounting bracket.

Created to offer a direct, intuitive control of the multi-material AMS system of Bambu, the Panda Touch reportedly lets users easily manage and customize filament types, colors, and 3D printing temperatures on up to 10 systems of Bambu at the same time.

This announcement follows the news that Bambu Lab will allow users to install third-party firmware on its 3D printers through an optional firmware update. To install third party firmware, customers must sign a waiver revoking their 3D printer’s warranty. 

Significantly, as a plug and play add-on, users do not need to sign the Bambu Lab warranty waiver to install the Panda Touch, or any other Panda Series product.    

Whilst technical specification and pricing details regarding the Panda Pad are currently limited, BIGTREETECH will announce more information during a live stream at 7:00 am EST on January 18th.  

Plug and play upgrades for Bambu Lab 3D printers

BIGTREETECH’s Panda Pad is promoted as providing seamless integration with Bambu Lab P1P and P1S 3D printers, with a straightforward and quick setup process.

The Panda Pad is capable of supporting up to 4 AMS units and 16 filament slots for each 3D printer, across up to 10 different Bambu Lab systems.

The supplement also includes a magnetic assembly and an integrated lithium battery. It can be charged via the magnetic base, the Print Pad can be removed from the 3D printer and used in a portable manner for a duration of up to 30 minutes.

What’s more, the Print Pad incorporates a customized UX&UI system that mirrors the original factory interface, whilst also offering wireless WiFi connectivity. 

BIQU has also announced the Panda Revo Hotend as part of the Panda Series. Developed in collaboration with UK-based hotend manufacturer E3D, this add-on is available to pre-order now for $149 via the BIQU online store. 

This new hotend is compatible with both Bambu Lab X1 and P1 Series 3D printers, and features a 0.4mm Revo HF nozzle and a 60W heater core for increased material flow. 

Moreover, the add-ons RapidChange Revo system allows the Panda Revo Hotend to be quickly and easily installed. Additionally, the hotend is compatible with all RapidChange Revo heaters and nozzles, facilitating tool-free nozzle changes without the need for heater disassembly. 

Bambu is yet to provide additional information regarding the upcoming Panda Lux, Panda Fur, and Panda nPEI Build Plate products.

These new third-party add-ons follow the launch of

Bambu Lab and E3D’s ObXidian hardened tip hotend

for X1 and P1 Series 3D printers in December 2023. This partnership marked Bambu’s first-ever third-party ecosystem collaboration. At the time, Bambu stated that it had made its “first step to embrace the aftermarket,” adding that it is “open to collaboration with responsible partners.”

3D printer upgrades

Although new for Bambu Lab, aftermarket 3D printer upgrades are a common feature of the 3D printing industry.
