Description

This is a simple purge bin designed for X1 and P1 range Bambu printers.

There are many purge bins out there and I've tried a lot, however, I often find they lead to purge build ups blocking the purge chute.

Features:
There was three main focuses with this purge (poop) bin:

  1. There is a slope directly below the exit hole, ensuring they don't just drop straight down and stack up in a pile quickly, but the slope is steep enough that the filament doesn't just get caught on it and build up from there. With others I've used, I often found the slope was too gradual and due to the fact the purges aren't perfectly round, they often didn't roll down it and caused build ups almost immediately.
  2. Whilst the slope will ensure the filament rolls away from that side of the purge bin, without intervention, there's no reason purges would ever roll around the corner, so I've added a slight slope on the outside corner inside the bin, so that when purges roll to that end, they will be directed around the corner.
  3. The section at the back is wide enough to ensure that purges don't get caught by it or stack up quickly.

With all three of those goals addressed, it's also a great size purge bin. It doesn't take up much space, but it can accommodate purges from hundreds of filament changes, rather than having to empty it several times a print.

 

Measurements:
It extends 75mm from the rear of the printer, and 80mm to the side.

 

Magnets:
It features slots for 3x optional 10x2mm magnets to be slotted on the inside of the bin

 

Print settings:

  • Layer Height: 0.2mm
  • Filament: PLA
  • Infill: 10% Rectilinear

I was using just empty filament boxes and almost running into a filament Jam every night. I'm free of that now, with the lowest profile print box ever. I do wish it were clearer on how a noob is meant to attach the box using the magnets. I have the magnet insets in place and they don't grab to anything 😄

Really glad the purge bucket is helpful to you. Alas the magnets are only really useful on the X1C which has a metal casing. However, they aren't essential as it should just slot into place using the corner of the printer as a guide.

printed great, still got a poop backup that nearly clogged my machine on a longer print.. but still a good option.

Glad you like it but sorry to hear you got a poop backup. Was it because the bucket was full or did you get a tower pile up directly below the chute and nothing had slid further along the base?

had a tower directly under the chute, rest of the bucket was empty. may have been a freak accident, it's been flawless since.

Ah sorry you had that issue but glad it's been good since. I guess it does largely rely on the shape of each poop and how it falls. Either way thanks for printing and commenting.
