We test and review the Bambu Lab X1-Carbon 3D printer! Since its release last year, it's shaken up the FDM 3D printing world with its fast CoreXY printing capabilities, hands-off accessibility, and convenient features like remote monitoring and automated filament switching. And at its fastest, we were able to print a test benchy in under 14 minutes! Here's what you should know about this printer and a look at how massively increasing print speeds affects print quality.
