Connecting Bambu Lab Printers To SimplyPrint

Note: The Bambu Lab integration is currently in an invite-only beta, which means that it is not publicly available yet.

Connecting Your Bambu Lab Printers to SimplyPrint



Bambu Lab printers can be connected to SimplyPrint via our custom integration. This might be different from other printers you have connected to SimplyPrint, so please read this guide carefully.

Before you start



Before you start this guide you should have the following:

A device (such as a computer or a Raspberry Pi) that you can use to run the SimplyPrint Bambu Lab integration.
- This device should be turned on at all times, and connected to the same network as the printer.
- We recommend using a Raspberry Pi, or an old computer that you can leave running.
One or more Bambu Lab printers.
- You can connect multiple printers to the same SimplyPrint Bambu Lab integration, but you will need to repeat the steps in this guide for each printer.

Step 1: Install the SimplyPrint Bambu Lab integration



Depending on the operating system of your device, the installation process will be slightly different. You can find the installation instructions for your operating system here.

After you have followed the instructions, the integration should now be installed and ready to go.

Step 2: Opening the Web Interface



The SimplyPrint Bambu Lab integration software has a web interface that you can use to add and manage linked printers. To open the web interface, open a web browser and go to http://localhost:8000 (or http://<your-device-ip>:8000 if you are not running the SimplyPrint Client on the same device as your web browser).

The web panel should look like this:

On MacOS and Windows the web interface can also be opened by clicking the SimplyPrint icon in the system tray.

Step 3: Adding a printer to the integration



To add a printer press the "Add printer" button in the top right corner of the page. This will ask you to fill out some information such that we know how to communicate with your printer. This information is:

The model of your printer.
The printer's IP address
The printer's access code
The printer's serial number

To get these details, please refer to these sections depending on which printer you have:

If you have a Bambu Lab X1, X1C or X1E, please refer to this section.
If you have a Bambu Lab P1P or P1S, please refer to this section.
If you have a Bambu Lab A1 or A1 Mini, please refer to this section.

Once you have the printer's details, fill out the information in the "Add printer" page, and press "Add printer" to continue.



After you have added the printer, return to the "Printers" page.

Step 4: Linking the Printer to SimplyPrint



After you have added the printer to the integration, you should see a "pending printer" in the "printers" page:

Pending printer in the web panel. An arrow is pointing to the setup code.

Here you can find the setup code for the printer. Copy this setup code, and go to the SimplyPrint panel, where you can add the new printer:



In the popup you should be able to find your printer and set it up:



If it does show up, enter the setup code manually at the bottom.

Your Bambu Lab printer is now connected to SimplyPrint!
