Bambu Lab Teases a New 3D Printer: See it Early at Micro Center Starting December 13


By Dan Ackerman

Bambu Lab, best known for its speedy, multi-color 3D printers, has a new printer just in time for Holiday shopping. 

Right now, all we have is a teaser image, a release date and some details about a special opportunity to see the printer in action early. 

The new printer doesn't have an official name or price yet, but the single teaser image released by Bambu Lab calls it a "Big bro," and references the A1 Mini, a beginner-friendly multi-color 3D printer that can handle four different colors of filament simultaneously, starting at a very reasonable $299.

But the A1 Mini has a relatively small 180x180x180mm build area, so a big brother would be a welcome addition. 

There are a few things we can confirm about the new Bambu Labs printer. The first is that it will go on sale December 14, starting at 9am ET. The second is that it will be on display at select Micro Center stores on December 13, so you can see it in action, running 3D printer demos. The third (and most important) is that Micro Center will be the exclusive retail launch partner for this new 3D printer, so if you want to see one in-person and then walk out of the store with it, come in and see us. 

Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to the release date.
