Approved 3D Printing Materials for Bambu P1P Without Enclosure

The following list includes materials that are recommended for use with the Bambu P1P 3D printer when not using an enclosure. These materials are chosen for their ease of printing, low emission during printing, and the lack of a need for controlled environment conditions.

PLA (Polylactic Acid)

  • Printing Temperature: 180°C - 220°C
  • Properties:
    • PLA is one of the most popular 3D printing materials due to its ease of use and environmental friendliness. Derived from renewable resources like corn starch, it's biodegradable under industrial composting conditions and prints with minimal odor, making it ideal for educational and household use.
    • Known for its good detail and low warping, PLA does not require a heated print bed, simplifying its use in open environments.

PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol)

  • Printing Temperature: 220°C - 250°C
  • Properties:
    • PETG offers a balance between the ease of PLA and the strength of ABS. It features good flexibility, strong layer adhesion, and resistance to chemical and moisture. PETG is more durable than PLA and does not emit harmful gases during printing, making it suitable for use without an enclosure.
    • Its slight flexibility and high durability make it appropriate for functional parts that require a degree of sturdiness not provided by PLA.

PLA+ (Enhanced PLA)

  • Printing Temperature: 190°C - 220°C
  • Properties:
    • PLA+ is an enhanced version of standard PLA, designed to be tougher and more durable. It retains all the printing ease of regular PLA but with increased strength and slightly higher resistance to heat.
    • Suitable for projects that demand a bit more from the material without the need for stringent printing conditions.

TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomers)

  • Printing Temperature: 210°C - 230°C
  • Properties:
    • TPE is a category of flexible 3D printing materials known for their elasticity and flexibility. These materials are easy to print and provide exciting options for items that require bending and stretching capabilities.
    • Ideal for producing objects like gaskets, hoses, and wearable items, TPE can be printed without an enclosure, though care should be taken to ensure the material feeds smoothly into the printer due to its flexibility.

These materials are suitable for printing on the Bambu P1P without an enclosure due to their lower operational temperatures and minimal hazardous emissions.
