BIQU is a brand of BIGTREETECH, a very well-known manufacturer for 3D printer mainboards and upgrade components such as various TMC stepper drivers and TFT touchscreens.
Now they have gathered their many years of knowledge and experience in the 3D printer industry and combined everything in the BIQU B1 – the perfect 3D printer, especially for DIY upgrades.
BTT SKR V1.4 32-bit mainboard
The BIQU B1 contains a SKR V1.4 32-bit mainboard from BIGTREETECH, which is a very popular and well-known upgrade. The integrated mainboard is very stable and supports a lot of connections and interfaces for upgrades and tuning such as WIFI, dual Z-axis etc.
Upgrade adapter board
The additional upgradable board is a very convenient feature for anyone who wants to upgrade their printer further. The B1 has a USB-C connection, dedicated port and holder for the Antclabs BLTouch upgrade or connection for the Smart Filament Sensor from BIGTREETECH.
Heated build plate
Thanks to the heated build plate on the B1, the printer can manage most materials that doesn’t require an enclosed build chamber. This includes all types of PLA (included modified types), PETG, some types of nylon and even ABS+*
SSS (Super Spring Steel)
The magnetic steel plate is a new innovation from BIQU. It adheres magnetically to the platform and can be easily removed after printing. The finished printout can be removed easily and safely by slightly bending the plate.
The steel plate has a special coating to ensure very good adhesion to the build plate.
In addition, the steel plate can be used on both sides - doubling the service life!
Dual – mode screen
With the B1 you can with the simple press of a button change the way you want the screen.
You can choose to run it as a touch screen (BIQU Touch) or the more “classic” mode, like a regular LCD (Marlin)
The filament sensor detects if you should run out of filament and puts the printer in pause mode. When new filament is loaded you can resume the print where it left off.
Power failure recovery
If you for some reason should have a power outage, don´t worry. The B1has you covered. When the power returns you can resume the print where you left off.
Ready for automatic bed leveling (not included)
Thanks to the ease of upgrading your machine, all you need id some cables and a BLTouch. The BLTouch uses a probe to detect any irregularities on the build plate and makes the necessary corrections.
*we don´t recommend larger ABS prints than 5x5x5 cm as the printer isn´t enclosed
