Prohibited Printing Filaments

For the Bambu P1P 3D printer without an enclosure, we've created a list of materials that are not recommended due to the printer's open design and the need for proper ventilation and temperature control:

  1. ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene): ABS is known for emitting potentially harmful fumes and requiring high temperatures for proper printing. These conditions are difficult to maintain without an enclosure, which can result in warping and poor air quality.

  2. ASA (Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate): Similar to ABS, ASA also emits fumes during printing and requires high temperatures that are best managed in an enclosed environment.

  3. PC (Polycarbonate): PC needs very high printing temperatures and is susceptible to moisture absorption, which can negatively impact print quality. Enclosures help maintain the necessary temperature and protect the material from environmental factors.

  4. Nylon: This material is tough and flexible but also requires high temperatures for printing. It absorbs moisture from the air, which can degrade its quality and performance without proper storage and printing conditions.

  5. HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene): Commonly used as a support material with ABS, HIPS requires similar printing conditions, including a heated environment to minimize warping, which is typically achieved with an enclosure.

Each of these materials presents specific challenges when used without an enclosure, such as the need for stable high temperatures and controlled ventilation to manage fumes and ensure print quality. When selecting filaments for the Bambu P1P, it's crucial to consider these factors to maintain safety and achieve optimal results​ (3DSourced)​​ (Printing It 3D)​​ (Manufacturing on Demand)​​ (Wevolver)​.
