ARC Enclosure Kit for the Bambu Lab P1P 3D Printer
Enclosure your Bambu Lab P1P 3D printer with the ARC Enclosure Kit to improve print quality, reduce printer noise, and enable high-temperature 3D printing!
ARC Enclosure Features
Bambu Lab P1P AMS Compatible
With the rigid, 5mm thick plexiglass top piece, the ARC Enclosure can easily support the weight of an AMS unit.
Even if you aren’t planning on adding an AMS to your setup, the top piece can be used as extra space for storing filament, prints, or tools, freeing up some space around your 3D printing workstation.
Removable Top for Easy Access
When your Bambu Lab P1P requires maintenance or cleaning, the top of the ARC enclosure can be removed for easier access to the inside of the P1P.
The ARC enclosure has tabs around the outside of the top piece so that it stays in the correct position on the P1P, and the top piece also has a simple handle to serve as a lifting point when removing the top from the printer.
Magnetic Door Latches
The ARC Enclosure features high-quality magnets that are used with the 3D-printed door latches.
These magnets are strong and keep the door of the ARC securely shut during operation, ensuring that the build volume remains at a stable temperature throughout the print.
Magnetic, Quick-Release Door Hinges
The door hinges, similar to the door latches, feature magnets to keep the door open when needed.
Additionally, the hinges can be positioned on either side of the door of the ARC. These hinges also feature a quick-release mechanism to easily remove or reattach the entire door as needed.
The Official ARC Kit for the Bambu Lab P1P

Increase the Build Chamber Temperature with the ARC Enclosure Kit for the Bambu Lab P1P
Before & After – Thermal Imaging of the Bambu Lab P1P 3D Printer with the ARC Enclosure
A significant benefit of the ARC Enclosure is that the enclosure increases the temperature of the build chamber, which allows you to print with high-temperature filaments with ABS, ASA, and Carbon Fiber without warping.
From our tests with a thermal camera, the ARC Enclosure is able to successfully increase the temperature of the chamber while also improving the uniformity of the air within the chamber.
ARC Enclosure Reduces the Bombu Lab P1P Noise Level by 10 Decibels
One of the major complaints of the Bambu Lab P1P is that the printer is loud.
The ARC Enclosure is able to reduce the noise that the printer makes by up to 10 decibels on average. Remember that the decibel system is logarithmic, so a 10-decibel decrease is a noticeable reduction in noise level.
Keep your 3D printer filament dry by keeping track of the humidity with the hygrometer!
Free files are available that will allow you to attach the hygrometer to the ARC Enclosure or the AMS unit using the magnets. See the User Guide PDF for more details.
HIGH-QUALITY PLEXIGLASS PANELS – This P1P enclosure kit includes all the plexiglass panels you need for the P1P ARC enclosure. Each panel has been laser-cut with precision to the dimensions specified in the build guide. Each P1P enclosure kit includes x2 3mm side panels, x1 3mm door panel, x1 3mm rear panel, and x1 5mm top panel.
AMS COMPATIBLE – One of the major benefits of owning a Bambu Lab P1P is that you can purchase an Automatic Material System (AMS) unit to print parts with multiple colors. The ARC enclosure is fully compatible with the AMS without any modifications, allowing you to confidently add the ARC enclosure without any changes to the functionality of the Bambu Lab P1P.
EXCLUSIVE AMAZON PARTNER OF THRUTHEFRAME – By purchasing this ARC P1P enclosure kit, you are directly supporting the designer, ThrutheFrame, who has spent a lot of time and effort perfecting this enclosure kit design for the Bambu Lab P1P. Since he released the ARC print files, he has made multiple updates and improvements to the design, which shows his dedication and commitment to this enclosure design.
SIDE FILAMENT HOLDER PARTS INCLUDED – One important upgrade that you get with the ARC enclosure is the ability to move the filament holder to the side of the 3D printer. By moving the filament holder, you have easier access to filament changes compared to having the filament mounted behind the printer.
REMOVABLE TOP PANEL – The top panel of the ARC enclosure is fully removable for easy access to the build chamber. This 5mm thick plexiglass panel is also strong enough to support the weight of an AMS unit or other printer accessories with ease which gives you extra space for your 3D printer workstation.
MAGNETIC DOOR LATCHES – The ARC enclosure kit uses magnetic latches to latch the door. By using magnets, the door of the ARC enclosure can securely close, creating a good seal so that heat stays inside the chamber.
MAGNETIC DOOR HINGES – The ARC build also uses door hinges with magnets that keep the door open so that you can remove the build plate or perform printer maintenance without the door accidentally closing.
QUICK-RELEASE MECHANISM – If you need to remove the whole door, the hinges have a built-in quick-release feature where you can take the entire door of the ARC enclosure kit off of the printer with ease.
BONUS HYGROMETER – Included in the kit is a bonus hygrometer to keep track of the temperature and humidity near your P1P 3D printer and ARC enclosure. The hygrometer can be set to Celsius or Fahrenheit for your convenience.
