Bambu Micro Lidar brings micrometer-level precision into 3D printing. The system probes the nozzle height, calibrates the flow, and scans the first layer, so the possibilities are endless.
Currently, the X1C is supplied with two types of micro LiDAR. The key distinction is that they are equipped with two types of lasers (see the figure below for details). This variation is a result of changes in our production schedule. There is no way to choose which micro LiDAR you will receive, but rest assured that there is no difference in functionality between the Dual IR laser version and the IR-blue laser combination version.
(Choose one, random delivery)
|Laser model||Safety scale||Laser parameters|
|1(Dual IR laser)||Class 1 laser product||Wavelength||850 nm、850 nm|
|Maximum Output||<0.778 mW|
|2(IR-blue laser combinations)||Class 2 laser product||Wavelength||405 nm、808 nm|
|Maximum Output||< 1 mW|
Please note that each Micro LiDAR version corresponds to the tool head circuit board (from now on referred to as the TH board). If you need to replace the Micro LiDAR or TH board, you must use the correct spare parts model for your Micro LiDAR. Otherwise, it will cause the electronic components on the Micro LIDAR and TH to burn out.
With that in mind, if you need to replace the Micro LiDAR or TH board, please provide the following information and contact the after-sales technical support to confirm the model of the laser and TH board.
Upload the printer log by opening a ticket; the after-sale technical support will help you confirm the model through the relevant information in the log.
Open the front cover of the tool head and upload the photo of the SN QR code of the Micro LiDAR and the SN information obtained by scanning the QR code to the technical tickets, as shown in the figure below:
Open the back cover of the tool head and upload the photo of the SN QR code on the TH board and the SN information obtained by scanning the QR code to the ticket, as shown in the picture below:
(The specific location of the QR code may be different from the picture below.)
Open the back cover of the tool head and observe the bottom of the vertical laser. If a small PCB is at the bottom, the laser is an IR-blue laser combination. If there is no small PCB, it is a dual infrared laser.
Observe the color emitted by the laser in the video recording. It should be noted that the wavelength of the dual infrared laser is in the infrared band, which is invisible to the naked eye, and the color can only be observed through the camera video. In addition, some cameras have an IR cut function, which may make it challenging to see infrared light clearly. In general, however, this method is not necessarily accurate for confirming the laser model. Please be assured that if there is a problem with the LiDAR (for example, the laser does not function), the HMS will notify you.
In most cases, only the light emitted by the horizontal laser can be seen in the video recorded by the chamber camera. The chamber camera is located on the left side, so the horizontal laser light coming from the right side can be captured by the camera, but the build plate will reflect the vertical infrared light on the rear side, so most of the light cannot be captured by the chamber camera, as shown below:
If you move a phone camera closer and use a 45-degree oblique angle, there is a chance to capture the light from the rear vertical laser with the camera, as shown in the figure below.
To summarize, we recommend that you provide both Method 1 and Method 2 information at the same time to ensure reliable confirmation. Once again, no matter which model you receive, there is no effect on functionality. You can use it with confidence and enjoy your printing!
