Bambu Lab integrates E3D nozzle kit for higher flow rate

The Chinese 3D printer start-up Bambu Lab has announced a cooperation with the British hotend specialist E3D. The aim is to offer an upgrade kit with a high-performance nozzle for Bambu printers.

According to the manufacturer, the jointly developed kit should enable 60 percent more flow. E3D is contributing its specially hardened ObXidian nozzle and an anti-wear coating. Bambu Lab has integrated the components into its software environment.

According to Bambu Lab, the collaboration is a first step towards an open ecosystem. The aim is to specifically support the community and make its own printers more flexible. Half of the revenue from the licenses will go to a foundation for up-and-coming 3D printing talent in developing countries and half to the Sanjay Mortimer Foundation.

With this step, Bambu Lab is also responding to criticism following its own Kickstarter launch. There, the company was accused of having a system that was too closed, making upgrades and innovations by other players more difficult. These fears have now been allayed by the cooperation with E3D.
